  journal={Physical Review D},
Based on the full BABAR data sample, we report improved measurements of the ratios R(D)=B(B→Dτ-ντ)/ B(B→Dl-νl) and R(D*)=B(B→D*τ-ντ)/ B(B→D*l-νl), where l refers to either an electron or muon. These ratios are sensitive to new physics contributions in the form of a charged Higgs boson. We measure R(D)=0.440±0.058±0.042 and R(D*)=0.332±0. 024±0.018, which exceed the standard model expectations by 2.0σ and 2.7σ, respectively. Taken together, the results disagree with these expectations at the 3.4… Expand
Test of lepton flavor universality by the measurement of the B0 →d∗-τ+ντ branching fraction using three-prong τ decays
The ratio of branching fractions R(D*-)≡B(B0→D*-τ+ντ)/B(B0→D*-μ+νμ) is measured using a data sample of proton-proton collisions collected with the LHCb detector at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8Expand
Probing a pseudoscalar at the LHC in light of muon g − 2 and R(D(⁎)) excesses

Investigation of effects of new physics in Λb→Λcτν¯τ decay

CP Violation in B̄ 0 → D ∗ + μ − ν̄ μ

Refining new-physics searches in B→Dτν with lattice QCD.
This result is the first standard-model calculation of R(D) from ab initio full QCD and is consistent with, but approximately 1σ higher than, previous estimates for phenomenologically relevant values of the scalar coupling in the type-II model. Expand
