These lectures provide an introduction to various topics in heavy-flavor physics. We review the theory and phenomenology of heavy-quark symmetry, exclusive weak decays of $B$ mesons, inclusive decay rates, and some rare $B$ decays. 
Split supersymmetry at colliders
Abstract.We consider the collider phenomenology of split-supersymmetry models. Despite the challenging nature of the signals in these models the long-lived gluino can be discovered with masses above
Semileptonic B decays in
Recent results from BABAR on the determination of the CKM matrix elements |V cb | and |V ub | are presented.
Charged kaon and proton production in B hadron decays
The production of charged kaons and protons in B-hadron decays has been measured in e+e- annihilations at centre-of-mass energies corresponding to the Z0 mass. In total 1.6 million hadronic Z0 decays
Exclusive Measurements in B to D^* N Nbar X
We report the first observation of exclusive decays of the type B to D^* N Nbar X, where N is a nucleon. Using a sample of 9.7 x 10^6 BBbar pairs collected with the CLEO detector operating at the
The \(B\rightarrow DDK\) Phenomenology
The \(\mathrm {CKM}\) matrix (\(V_{CKM}\)) encodes the complex amplitudes of flavour changing processes between quarks (see Sect. 1.6.1). The experimental absolute values of \(V_{CKM}\) elements
