Abstract We revisit the status of the new-physics interpretations of the anomalies in semileptonic B decays in light of the new data reported by Belle on the lepton-universality ratios R D(*) using the semileptonic tag and on the longitudinal polarization of the D * in B → D * τν, $$ {F}_L^{D\ast } $$ F L D ∗ . The preferred solutions involve new left-handed currents or tensor contributions. Interpretations with pure right-handed currents are disfavored by…

We apply the general formalism derived in N. Penalva et al. [Phys. Rev. D 101, 113004 (2020)] to the semileptonic decay of pseudoscalar mesons containing a $b$ quark. While present $B\to D^{(*)}$

B anomalies under the lens of electroweak precision

Abstract The measurements carried out at LEP and SLC projected us into the precision era of electroweak physics. This has also been relevant in the theoretical interpretation of LHCb and Belle

Next-to-leading-order QCD matching for ∆F = 2 processes in scalar leptoquark models

Abstract Leptoquarks provide viable solutions to the flavour anomalies, i.e. they can explain the tensions between the measurements and the Standard Model predictions of the anomalous magnetic

The role of right-handed neutrinos in $$ b\to c\tau \overline{v} $$ anomalies

Motivated by the persistent anomalies reported in the $$ b\to c\tau \overline{v} $$ data, we perform a general model-independent analysis of these transitions, in the presence of light

New physics and the tau polarization vector in b → $$ \mathrm{c}\tau {\overline{\nu}}_{\tau } $$ decays

Abstract: For a general Hb Ñ Hcτ ν̄τ decay we analyze the role of the τ polarization vector Pμ in the context of lepton flavor universality violation studies. We use a general phenomenological

Revisiting the B-physics anomalies in R-parity violating MSSM

In recent years, several deviations from the Standard Model predictions in semileptonic decays of $B$-meson might suggest the existence of new physics which would break the lepton-flavour

Bottom-flavored mono-tau tails at the LHC

We study the effective field theory sensitivity of an LHC analysis for the $\tau \nu$ final state with an associated b-jet. To illustrate the improvement due to the b-tagging, we first recast the

Analysing the charged scalar boson contribution to the charged-current $B$ meson anomalies

Experimental measurements collected by the BABAR, Belle, and LHCb experiments on different observables associated with the semileptonic transition $b \to c \tau \bar{\nu}_\tau$, indicate the



Anatomy of b → c τ ν anomalies

A bstractIn recent times, one of the strongest hints of Physics Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) has been the anomaly in the ratios RD and RD*$$ {R}_{D^{*}} $$ measured in the charged current decays

Combined explanations of B-physics anomalies: the sterile neutrino solution

Towards a viable scalar interpretation of RD(*)

Recent measurements of semileptonic B-meson decays seemingly imply violations of lepton flavor universality beyond the Standard Model predictions. With three-level explanations based on extended

Sensitivity to charged scalars in B → D(*)τντ and B → τντ decays

A bstractWe analyze the recent experimental evidence for an excess of τ -lepton production in several exclusive semileptonic B-meson decays in the context of two-Higgs-doublet models. These decay

Constraining new physics in b → cℓν transitions

A bstractB decays proceeding via b → cℓν transitions with ℓ = e or μ are tree-level processes in the Standard Model. They are used to measure the CKM element Vcb, as such forming an important

Importance of Loop Effects in Explaining the Accumulated Evidence for New Physics in B Decays with a Vector Leptoquark.

P phenomenological analysis finds that neither the tension in V_{us} nor the excess in B_{d}→τ^{+}τ^{-} can be fully explained without violating bounds from K→πνν[over ¯], however, one can account for b→cτν and b→uτν data finding intriguing correlations with B_{q}→ τ^{+}.
