B-anomalies: a road to new physics
Even though the LHC searches so far did not unveil the new physics particles, observations made at the LHC and at the B-factories point towards lepton flavor universality violation in both tree-level and loop-induced B-meson semileptonic decays. After a brief review of the status of these anomalies, I will discuss general implications that can be derived by using (i) an effetive field theory approach and (ii) specific leptoquark models.
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..
