After years of silence we should witness in the rest of this decade and in the next decade the revival of kaon flavour physics. This is not only because of the crucial measurements of the branching ratios for the rare decays K + → π + vv and K L → π 0 vv by NA62 and KOTO that being theoretically clean and very sensitive to new physics (NP) could hint for new phenomena even beyond the reach of the LHC without any significant theoretical uncertainties. Indeed simultaneously the advances in the…

The Return of Kaon Flavour Physics
Kaon flavour physics has played in the 1960s and 1970s a very important role in the construction of the Standard Model (SM) and in the 1980s and 1990s in SM tests with the help of CP violation in


Can we reach the Zeptouniverse with rare K and Bs,d decays?
A bstractThe Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will directly probe distance scales as short as 10−19 m, corresponding to energy scales at the level of a few TeV. In order to reach even higher resolutions
The anatomy of Z′ and Z with flavour changing neutral currents in the flavour precision era
A bstractThe simplest extension of the Standard Model (SM) that generally introduces new sources of flavour violation and CP violation as well as right-handed (RH) currents is the addition of a U(1)
The anatomy of quark flavour observables in 331 models in the flavour precision era
A bstractThe coming flavour precision era will allow to uncover various patterns of flavour violation in different New Physics (NP) scenarios that are presently washed out by hadronic and
Quark flavour observables in the Littlest Higgs model with T-parity after LHC Run 1
A new analysis of quark flavour observables in the LHT model in view of the oncoming flavour precision era is presented, taking into account new lower bounds on the symmetry breaking scale and the mirror quark masses from the LHC.
