New measurements of the rates of rare B-meson decays to electrons and muons open a further avenue through which to explore the flavour anomalies.
The LHCb experiment recently presented new results on the b → sμμ decay of a Bs meson to a φ meson and a dimuon pair.
LHCb's brand-new “SciFi” tracker and upgraded ring-imaging Cherenkov detectors are vital for the higher LHC luminosities ahead.
The collaboration last week reported the first direct evidence for the long-sought interplay between hadron decays, downplaying the chances that the a1(1420) is a new exotic hadron.
The new state, announced today at EPS-HEP, had been held up since the 1980s as a prime candidate to be the first exotic hadronic state to be stable against strong decays.
Over 1000 physicists took part in the ninth Large Hadron Collider Physics conference.
A recent measurement by the LHCb collaboration has confirmed the measured lifetime of the doubly strange Ωc0.
The mass difference associated with the oscillation, first observed in this analysis, is one of the smallest mass differences ever measured.
It is curious to note that if the Ξb(6100)– baryon were only 13 MeV heavier, it would be above the Λb0 K- mass threshold.
The highlight of the conference was the new LHCb result on RK based on the full Run 1 and Run 2 data.
