During the last few years, new experimental and theoretical results have allowed ever-more-stringent tests of the Standard Model to be performed using kaon decays. This overview of recent progress includes updated results for the evaluation of the CKM matrix element $V_{us}$ and related tests of CKM unitarity from experimental data on kaon decays.

Right-handed neutrinos and the CDF II anomaly

We point out that right-handed neutrinos can resolve the tension between the latest CDF-II measurement of the W -boson mass, M W , and the standard model. Integrating out the new states yields a

CP asymmetry in the angular distributions of τ → KSπντ decays. Part II. General effective field theory analysis

In this work, we proceed to study the CP asymmetry in the angular distributions of τ → K S πν τ decays within a general effective field theory framework including four-fermion operators up to

Ratio of kaon and pion leptonic decay constants with Nf=2+1+1 Wilson-clover twisted-mass fermions

We present a determination of the ratio of kaon and pion leptonic decay constants in isosymmetric QCD (ISOQCD), f K =f π , making use of the gauge ensembles produced by the Extended Twisted Mass

Are the CKM anomalies induced by vector-like quarks? Limits from flavor changing and Standard Model precision tests

Recent high precision determinations of Vus and Vud indicate towards anomalies in the first row of the CKM matrix. Namely, determination of Vud from beta decays and of Vus from kaon decays imply a

Fermi Constant from Muon Decay Versus Electroweak Fits and Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa Unitarity.

It is investigated how BSM physics could bring the three determinations of G_{F} into agreement using SM effective field theory and comment on future perspectives.

Measurement of the branching fraction for the decay K S → π μν with the KLOE detector

Based on a sample of 300 million K S mesons produced in φ → K L K S decays recorded by the KLOE experiment at the DA (cid:5) NE e + e − collider we have measured the branching fraction for the decay

In Pursuit of New Physics with $B_d^0\to J/\psi K^0$ and $B_s^0\to J/\psi\phi$ Decays at the High-Precision Frontier

The decays $B_d^0\to J/\psi K^0_{\text{S}}$and $B_s^0\to J/\psi\phi$ play a key role for the determination of the $B^0_q$-$\bar B^0_q$ ($q=d,s$) mixing phases $\phi_d$ and $\phi_s$, respectively. The

Muon g − 2 and CKM unitarity in extra lepton models

We investigate the impact of extra leptons on observed tensions in the muon g − 2 and the first-row CKM unitarity. By introducing a new SU(2)L doublet lepton and a SU(2)L triplet lepton, we find that
