$$|\Delta c|=|\Delta u|=1$$ processes are unique probes of flavor physics in the up-sector within and beyond the Standard Model (SM). SM tests with rare semileptonic charm meson decays are based on an approximate CP–symmetry, a superior GIM–mechanism, angular distributions, lepton-universality and lepton flavor conservation. We analyze the complete set of null test observables in $$D \rightarrow \pi \ell \ell ^{(\prime )}$$ and $$D_s \rightarrow K \ell \ell ^{(\prime )}$$ decays, $$\ell…

Exploiting CP asymmetries in rare charm decays

We analyze patterns from CP-violating new physics (NP) in hadronic and semileptonic rare charm $\vert \Delta c \vert=\vert \Delta u\vert=1$ transitions. Observation of direct CP-violation in hadronic

Searches for 25 rare and forbidden decays of D+ and $$ {D}_s^{+} $$ mesons

Testing lepton flavour universality with (semi)-leptonic $$\varvec{D_{(s)}}$$ decays

Data in B-meson decays indicate violations of lepton flavour universality, thereby raising the question about such phenomena in the charm sector. We perform a model-independent analysis of NP

Charm physics confronts high-pT lepton tails

We present a systematic survey of possible short-distance new-physics effects in (semi)leptonic charged- and neutral-current charmed meson decays. Using the Standard Model Effective Field Theory

Chiral Abelian gauge theories with few fermions

We construct chiral theories with the smallest number $n_\chi$ of Weyl fermions that form an anomaly-free set under various Abelian gauge groups. For the $U(1)$ group, where $n_\chi = 5$, we show

Mixing and CP Violation in the Charm System

In recent years charm physics has undergone a renaissance, one which has been catalysed by an unexpected and impressive set of experimental results from the $B$-factories, the Tevatron and LHCb. The

Theoretical and experimental status of rare charm decays

Rare charm decays offer the unique possibility to explore flavour-changing neutral-currents in the up-sector within the Standard Model and beyond. Due to the lack of effective methods to reliably



Null tests from angular distributions in D→P1P2l+l− , l=e , μ decays on and off peak

We systematically analyze the full angular distribution in $D \to P_1 P_2 l^+ l^-$ decays, where $P_{1,2}=\pi,K$, $l=e,\mu$. We identify several null tests of the standard model (SM). Notably, the

We work out the phenomenology of untagged time-dependent analysis with radiative $$D^0$$D0-decays into CP eigenstates, which allows to probe the photon polarization by means of the charm mesons’

Resonance catalyzed CP asymmetries in D→Pℓ$^+$ℓ$^-$

Recently observed increase of direct CP asymmetry in charm meson nonleptonic decays is difficult to explain within the SM. If this effect is induced by new physics, this might be investigated in
