  • Flavor changing neutral current $|\Delta B|=|\Delta S|=1$ processes are sensitive to possible new physics at the electroweak scale and beyond, providing detailed information about flavor, chirality and Lorentz structure. Recently the LHCb collaboration announced a $2.6 \sigma$ deviation in the measurement of $R_K={\cal{B}}(\bar B \to \bar K \mu \mu)/{\cal{B}}(\bar B \to \bar K ee)$ from the standard model's prediction of lepton universality. We identify dimension six operators which could… CONTINUE READING
