The LHCb collaboration recently reported the results of searches for two complementary charged-lepton-flavour violating decays.
LHCb’s amplitude analyses contain the largest CP asymmetry in a single component of an amplitude analysis, found in the ππ ↔ KK re-scattering amplitude.
Recent experimental results hint that some electroweak processes are not lepton-flavour independent.
A major theme of the electroweak session was flavour physics, and the star of the show was LHCb’s observation of CP violation in charm decays.
The LHCb data also confirm that the structure previously reported by the collaboration in 2015 has now been resolved into two narrow, overlapping peaks.
The MEG II experiment is preparing to probe the muon’s flavour-violating decay to a positron and a photon with unprecedented sensitivity.
The LHCb collaboration has released a much anticipated update on its measurement of RK – a powerful test of lepton universality.
Met with an impromptu champagne celebration, the result represents a milestone in particle physics.
BaBar has now chalked up more than 580 papers on CP violation and many other topics.
Given LHCb’s current level of experimental precision, any sign of CP violation would be a clear indication of physics beyond the Standard Model.
