Abstract

We have studied the production of Ds mesons in the decays of B mesons at the (4S) resonance. We report on the first observation of exclusive B-meson decays B->Ds-D*+, BDs-D, and BDs-D0. We also present a new measurement of the branching ratio and the momentum spectrum for the inclusive decay BDsX.
