LHCb reported anomalies in $B\to K^* \mu^+\mu^-$, $B_s\to\phi\mu^+\mu^-$ and $R(K)=B\to K \mu^+\mu^-/B\to K e^+e^-$. Furthermore, BaBar, BELLE and LHCb found hints for the violation of lepton flavour universality violation in $R(D^{(*)})=B\to D^{(*)}\tau\nu/B\to D^{(*)}\ell\nu$. In this note we reexamine these decays and their correlations to $B\to K^{(*)}\nu\bar{\nu}$ using gauge invariant dim-6 operators. For the numerical analysis we focus on scenarios in which new physics couples, in the…

First-generation new physics in simplified models: from low-energy parity violation to the LHC

New-physics (NP) constraints on first-generation quark-lepton interactions are particularly interesting given the large number of complementary processes and observables that have been measured.

Lepton flavour violation in rare $$\Lambda _b$$ decays

Lepton flavour violation (LFV) naturally occurs in many new physics models, specifically in those explaining the B anomalies. While LFV has already been studied for mesonic decays, it is important to

Flavorful leptoquarks at the LHC and beyond: spin 1

Evidence for electron-muon universality violation that has been revealed in b → sℓℓ transitions in the observables RKK∗\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym}

The LFU ratio R π in the Standard Model and beyond.

It is shown that in wide regions of the dilepton invariant mass spectrum the ratio between muonic and electronic decay widths can be predicted with high accuracy, both within and beyond the Standard Model.

Resonant third-generation leptoquark signatures at the Large Hadron Collider

Given the hints of lepton-flavour non-universality in B-meson decays, leptoquarks (LQs) are enjoying a renaissance. We propose novel Large Hadron Collider (LHC) searches for such hypothetical states

Scalar leptoquarks in leptonic processes

Leptoquarks are hypothetical new particles, which couple quarks directly to leptons. They experienced a renaissance in recent years as they are prime candidates to explain the so-called flavor

Quark and lepton mass and mixing with non-universal Z′ from a 5d Standard Model with gauged SO(3)

We propose a theory of quark and lepton mass and mixing with non-universal Z′ couplings based on a 5d Standard Model with quarks and leptons transforming as triplets under a new gauged SO(3) isospin.

Relations between b → cτν decay modes in scalar models

As a consequence of the Ward identity for hadronic matrix elements, we find relations between the differential decay rates of semileptonic decay modes with the underlying quark-level transition b →

B anomalies under the lens of electroweak precision

The measurements carried out at LEP and SLC projected us into the precision era of electroweak physics. This has also been relevant in the theoretical interpretation of LHCb and Belle measurements of

Vector leptoquarks beyond tree level. II. O(αs) corrections and radial modes

We clarify open issues in relating low- and high-energy observables, at next-to-leading order accuracy, in models with a massive leptoquark embedded in a flavor nonuniversal SU(4)×SU(3)×SU(2)×U(1)
