The angular distributions and the differential branching fraction of the decay B-0 -> K*(892)(0)mu(+)mu(-) are studied using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.2 fb(-1) collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in pp collisions at root s = 7 TeV. From more than 400 signal decays, the forward-backward asymmetry of the muons, the K*(892)(0) longitudinal polarization fraction, and the differential branching fraction are determined as a function of the square of the dimuon invariant mass. The measurements are in good agreement with standard model predictions. (C) 2013 CERN. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
