Abstract

A search for the decays of the B+ c meson to pp-π+ is performed for the first time using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb-1 collected by the LHCb experiment in pp collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. No signal is found and an upper limit, at 95% confidence level, is set, fcfu×B(B+ c→ppπ+)T(B)c (fu) is the fragmentation fraction of the b quark into a Bc+ (B+) meson.
