The decay has recently been observed by the CDF collaboration and will be of interest for the LHCb experiment. This channel will offer a new tool to extract the angle γ of the unitarity triangle and to control doubly Cabibbo-suppressed penguin corrections to the determination of sin 2β from the well-known mode with the help of the U-spin symmetry of strong interactions. While any competitive determination of γ is interesting, the latter aspect is particularly relevant as LHCb will enter a territory of precision which makes the control of doubly Cabibbo-suppressed Standard-Model corrections mandatory. Using the data from CDF and the e + e − B factories as a guideline, we explore the sensitivity for γ and the penguin parameters and point out that the – mixing phase φ s , which is only about −2° in the Standard Model but may be enhanced through new physics, is a key parameter for these analyses. We find that the mixing-induced CP violation shows an interesting correlation with sin φ s , which serves as a target region for the first measurement of this observable at LHCb.
