This article reports world averages of measurements of b-hadron, c-hadron, and $$\tau $$τ-lepton properties obtained by the Heavy Flavor Averaging Group using results available through summer 2016. For the averaging, common input parameters used in the various analyses are adjusted (rescaled) to common values, and known correlations are taken into account. The averages include branching fractions, lifetimes, neutral meson mixing parameters, $$C\!P$$CP  violation parameters, parameters of… Expand
