Abstract

The previous measurements of the D+ → KSK- π+π+ branching ratio were improved. In addition, first observation was made of the D+(Ds+ → KSK+π+π-) and D+ → KSK+K-π+ decay processes was made using a high statistics sample of photoproduced charged particles from the FOCUS experiment at Fermilab.
