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
Bayesian Approach to Investigating Supersymmetric Models
With Bayesian statistics, constrained and phenomenological supersymmetric models are examined and compared with the strongest contemporary experimental results, including the Higgs discovery, Large
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
