Weak Decays of $b$ and $c$ Quarks

  title={Weak Decays of \$b\$ and \$c\$ Quarks},
  author={Angelo Di Canto and Stefan Meinel},
Precision measurements in weak decays of heavy flavored hadrons can test in unique ways our understanding of the fundamental interactions and of the observed baryon asymmetry in the Universe. The high sensitivity of such decays to beyond-Standard-Model physics, combined with the lack of major discoveries in direct production of new particles, motivates the continuation of a strong heavy-flavor program in the next decades. The observation of several anomalies by the BaBar, Belle and LHCb… 

Charged Lepton Flavor Violation

This reports summarizes the activities of the Charged Lepton Flavor Violation (CLFV) group of the 2022 Community Summer Study. CLFV reactions provide unique information on the scale and dynamics of

Report of the Frontier For Rare Processes and Precision Measurements

uncertainties on γ resulting from BESIII/STCF measurements of the D strong-phase differences, which will contribute as external inputs to the Belle II and LHCb measurements.



New physics in B meson mixing: Future sensitivity and limitations

The mixing of neutral mesons is sensitive to some of the highest scales probed in laboratory experiments. In light of the planned LHCb Upgrade II, a possible upgrade of Belle II, and the broad

Semitauonic b -hadron decays: A lepton flavor universality laboratory

The study of lepton flavor universality violation (LFUV) in semitauonic $b$-hadron decays has become increasingly important in light of longstanding anomalies in their measured branching fractions,

Test of lepton universality in beauty-quark decays

The standard model of particle physics currently provides our best description of fundamental particles and their interactions. The theory predicts that the different charged leptons, the electron,

Probing lepton-flavour universality with decays

We analyse the rare processes in view of the recent hints of violations of lepton-flavour universality (LFU) observed in B meson decays. If, as suggested by present data, the new interactions

Rare Charm Decays in the Standard Model and Beyond

We perform a comprehensive study of a number of rare charm decays, incorporating the first evaluation of the QCD corrections to the short distance contributions, as well as examining the long range

Model-independent bounds on new physics effects in non-leptonic tree-level decays of B-mesons

Abstract We present a considerably improved analysis of model-independent bounds on new physics effects in non-leptonic tree-level decays of B-mesons. Our main finding is that contributions of about

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

Flavor SU(3) and Λ b decays

The improvements in vertex detection and particle identification have made hadron colliders competitive in many cases with lepton colliders for the study of heavy flavor decays. This is particularly

Three-body non-leptonic heavy-to-heavy B decays at NNLO in QCD

Exclusive non-leptonic two-body decays of $B$ mesons have been studied extensively in the past two decades within the framework of factorization. However, the exploration of the corresponding

High- p T dilepton tails and flavor physics

: We investigate the impact of flavor-conserving, non-universal quark-lepton contact interactions on the dilepton invariant mass distribution in pp + processes at the LHC. After recasting the recent
