Abstract

Using data from Fermilab fixed-target experiment E791, we measure the branching ratio for D0 → K- K+ π- π+ and its resonant components. We find Γ(D0 → K- K+ π- π+)/Γ(D0 → K- π+ π- π+) = (3.13 ± 0.37 ± 0.36)%. A coherent amplitude analysis is used to estimate the resonant components. We measure the ratios Γ(D0 → f)/Γ(D0 → K- π+ π- π+) to be (2.0 ± 0.9 ± 0.8)% for f = φρ0, (0.9 ± 0.4 ± 0.5)% for f = φπ+ π-, < 2.0% at the 90% CL for f = K * 0(892)K̄ * 0(892), and < 1.0% at the 90% CL for f = K̄ * 0(892)K+ π- or K * 0(892)K- π+.
