Recently, the BaBar collaboration reported first evidence for new physics in B->D\tau\nu and B->D*\tau\nu. Combining both processes the significance is 3.4\sigma. This result cannot be explained in a two Higgs doublet model of type II. Furthermore, the CKMfitter group finds a 2.9\sigma discrepancy between the Standard Model prediction for Br[B->\tau\nu] (using Vub from a global fit to the unitary triangle) and the measurements of the B factories. Altogether, these measurements are strong…

Testing the Standard Model in $B \to D \tau \bar \nu$ decay with minimal theory input

Recent experimental results for the ratio of the branching fractions of $\bar B \to D^{(*)}\tau \nu_\tau$ and $B\to D^{(*)} \mu \nu_\mu$ decays came as a surprise and lead to a discussion of

Diagnosing New Physics in $b \to c \, \tau \, \nu_\tau$ decays in the light of the recent BaBar result

The BaBar Collaboration has recently reported the measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of $\bar{B} \to D(D^{*}) \tau^{-} \bar{\nu_\tau}$ to $\bar{B} \to D(D^{*}) \ell^{-}

Recent experimental results for the ratios of the branching fractions of the decays $\bar{B} \to D^{(*)} \tau \bar\nu$ and $\bar{B} \to D^{(*)} \mu \bar\nu$ came as a surprise and lead to a

A Complete Framework for Tau Polarimetry in $B\to D^{(*)}\tau\nu$ Decays

The meson decays $B\to D\tau\nu$ and $B\to D^* \tau \nu$ are sensitive probes of the $b\to c\tau\nu$ transition. In this work we present a complete framework to obtain the maximum information on the

Looking for possible new physics in B →D (*) τ ν τ in light of recent data

We study the decays $B\to D^{(\ast)}\tau\nu_{\tau}$ in light of the available data from BABAR, Belle and LHCb. We divide our analysis into two parts: in one part we fit the form-factors in these

$b \to c\tau\bar\nu$ decays in supersymmetry with $R$-parity violation.

In the past few years, several hints of lepton flavour universality (LFU) violation have emerged in the $b \to c \tau \bar\nu$ and $b \to s \ell^+ \ell^-$ data. Quite recently, the Belle

Charged Higgs: Interpretation of $B$-physics results

In these proceedings we review the impact of additional Higgs bosons on $B$ physics observables. For this purpose, we consider first the 2HDM of type II which respects natural flavour conservation.

Azimuthal $B \to D^{*} \tau^{-} \bar{\nu_\tau}$ angular distribution with tensor operators

In a recent paper we performed a comprehensive study of the impact of new-physics operators with different Lorentz structures on $\BDstarellnu$ decays, $\ell = e^-, \mu^-, \tau^- $, involving the $b

Heavy quark decays provide a very advantageous investigation to test the Standard Model (SM). Recently, promising experiments with \textit{b} quark, as well as the analysis of the huge data sets
