A bstractUntil now, the Cabibbo Kobayashi Maskawa matrix element, |Vcb|, has always been measured in B decays, i.e. at an energy scale qb∼mb2$$ {q}_b\sim \frac{m_b}{2} $$, far below the weak scale. We consider here the possibility of measuring it close to the weak scale, at qW ∼ mW, in top decays at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Our proposed method would use data from the LHC experiments in hadronic top decays t→bW+→bb¯c$$ t\to b{W}^{+}\to b\overline{b}c $$, tagged by the semileptonic decay… 
Measurement of the CKM matrix element $$|V_{cb}|$$ from top quark pair events at the LHC
Measurements of the Cabbibo–Kobayashi–Maskawa matrix elements are important tests of the consistency of the standard model. However, there is some tension in the $$|V_{cb}|$$ measurements, depending
Heavy-quark opportunities and challenges at FCC-ee
The abundant production of beauty and charm hadrons in the 5 × 10 Z decays expected at FCC-ee offers outstanding opportunities in flavour physics that in general exceed those available at Belle II,
The CKM parameters in the SMEFT
A bstractThe extraction of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix from flavour observables can be affected by physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). We provide a general roadmap to take this

A direct search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying to a pair of charm quarks is presented. Associated production of the Higgs and Z bosons, in the decay mode ZH → l þ l − c ¯ c is studied. A
Renormalization group evolution of the CKM matrix
Abstract. We compute the renormalization of the complete CKM matrix in the $\overline{MS}$ scheme and perform a renormalization group analysis of the CKM parameters. The calculation is simplified by
