Abstract
Using the CLEO II detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring we have mea sured the Xi (0)(c) decay asymmetry parameter in the decay Xi (0)(c) --> Xi (-)pi (+). We find alpha (o)(Xi)alpha (Xi)= 0.26+/- 0.18(stat)(-0.04)(+0.0 5)(syst); using the world average value of alpha (Xi)= - 0.456+/-0.014 we o btain alpha (o)(Xic)= - 0.56 +/- 0.39(stat)(-0.09)(+0.10)(syst). The physic ally allowed rang of a decay asymmetry parameter is - 1 <<alpha>< + 1. Our result prefers a negative value: <alpha>Xi (0)(c) is <0.1 at the 90% C.L. T he central value occupies the middle of the theoretically expected range bu t is not yet precise enough to choose between models.
