## Abstract

Using a sample of (Formula presented) (Formula presented) meson pairs collected with the CLEO detector, we study B decays to the (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) charmonia states, which are reconstructed via their radiative decays to (Formula presented) We first measure the branching fraction for inclusive (Formula presented) production in B decays to be (Formula presented) where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second one is systematic. We derive the branching fractions for direct (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) production in B decays by subtracting the known contribution of the decay chain (Formula presented) with (Formula presented) We obtain (Formula presented) No statistically significant signal for (Formula presented) production is observed in either case. Using the Feldman-Cousins approach, we determine the 95% confidence intervals to be (Formula presented) for (Formula presented) (Formula presented) for (Formula presented) and [0.00,0.44] for the ratio (Formula presented) We also measure the branching ratio (Formula presented) for different (Formula presented) configurations by reconstructing B decays into exclusive final states with (Formula presented) γ, a kaon, and up to four pions. For all the (Formula presented) configurations, we observe a strong (Formula presented) signal yet no statistically significant (Formula presented) signal. We discuss how our results compare with theoretical predictions in different models of charmonium production.
