Abstract:
Using data from the FOCUS experiment(FNAL-E831), we report on
the decay of $D^0$ mesons into final states containing two K$^0_S$. We
present the discovery of Cabibbo favored decay modes $D^0\rightarrow
K^0_SK^0_S\pi^+K^-$ and $D^0\rightarrow K^0_SK^0_S\pi^-K^+$ and measure
their combined branching fractions relative to $D^0\rightarrow \overline{K}\,\!^0\pi^+\pi^-$
to be
$\frac{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow K^0_SK^0_SK^{\pm}\pi^{\mp})}{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow
\overline{K}\,\!^0\pi^+\pi^-)}$ =
0.0106 $\pm$ 0.0019 $\pm$ 0.0010. Further, we report new measurements of
$\frac{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow K^0_SK^0_SK^0_S)}{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow
\overline{K}\,\!^0\pi^+\pi^-)}$ = 0.0179 $\pm$ 0.0027 $\pm$ 0.0026,
$\frac{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow K^0\overline{K}\,\!^0)}{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow
\overline{K}\,\!^0\pi^+\pi^-)}$ = 0.0144 $\pm$ 0.0032 $\pm$ 0.0016, and
$\frac{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow K^0_SK^0_S\pi^+\pi^-)}{\Gamma(D^0\rightarrow
\overline{K}\,\!^0\pi^+\pi^-)}$ = 0.0208 $\pm$ 0.0035 $\pm$ 0.0021 where the first error is statistical and the second
is systematic.
