The decays of D0 and D0 mesons produced from e +e- annihilations at the psi'' resonance reflect quantum correlations so that decay rates are sensitive to interference between indistinguishable final states. Using the CLEO-c detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we measure the time-independent decay rates of D0 decays to K-pi +, K+pi-, several CP eigenstates, and semileptonic states. We make use of both partially and fully reconstructed D0 - D0 pairs. A chi2 minimization fitter extracts from these decay rates mixing and doubly Cabibbo suppressed decay parameters x2, y, r 2, and cos delta, along with isolated D 0 branching fractions for all input final states. By constraining the branching fractions and r2 with independent measurements, a first measurement of cos delta can be made.Particles sharing a top-left to bottom-right diagonal have the same electric charge .
