    Hi, which of these decay mechanisms is correct?

    B0 -> K+ pi- or B0 -> K- pi+

    (where B is the B meson, K is the kaon and pi is the pion)

    On wikipedia, it states that the second equation is correct, but I've read elsewhere that the first equation is correct for B, and the second for B-bar... :confused:

    Thanks.
