Abstract

We present a measurement of the branching fractions for B → D/D */D(*)πℓ-̄νℓ decays based on 341.1 fb-1 of data collected at the γ(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e+e- storage rings. Events are tagged by fully reconstructing one of the B mesons in a hadronic decay mode. We obtain B(B- → D0ℓ-̄νℓ) = (2.33 ± 0.09 (stat.) ± 0.09 (syst.))%, B(B- → D*0ℓ-̄νℓ) = (5.83±0.15 (stat.)±0.30 (syst.))%, B(B0 → D+ℓ-̄νℓ) = (2.21±0.11 (stat.)±0.12 (syst.))%, B(B0 → D*+ℓ-̄νℓ) = (5.49 ± 0.16 (stat.) ± 0.25 (syst.))%, B(B- → D+π-ℓ-̄νℓ) = (0.42 ± 0.06 (stat.) ± 0.03 (syst.))%, B(B- → D *+π-ℓ-̄νℓ) = (0.59±0.05 (stat.)±0.04 (syst.))%, B(B0 → D*π+ℓ- ̄νℓ) = (0.43±0.08 (stat.)±0.03 (syst.))% and B(B0 → D*0π+ℓ-̄νℓ) = (0.48±0.08 (stat.)±0.04 (syst.))%.
