Lepton non-universality tests at LHCb
Rare flavour-changing neutral current processes such as b -> s l+ l- are sensitive probes of effects beyond the Standard Model (SM). Recently, the LHCb experiment at CERN has measured several of these processes that test the nature of lepton-flavour universality in the SM. I will review the latest measurements, the connections between them and highlight some new physics models that attempt to explain the anomalies. Future directions of the experimental research will be presented.
The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
