Aligned and Spontaneous Flavor Violation / Egana-Ugrinovic, Daniel ; Homiller, Samuel ; Meade, Patrick
We present a systematic spurion setup called aligned flavor violation (AFV) that allows for new physics couplings to quarks that are aligned with standard model (SM) Yukawa couplings, but do not necessarily share their hierarchies nor are family universal. [...]

Deciphering the X(3872) via its Polarization in Prompt Production at the CERN LHC / Butenschoen, Mathias ; He, Zhi-Guo ; Kniehl, Bernd A.
Based on the hypothesis that the X(3872) exotic hadron is a mixture of χc1(2P) and other states and that its prompt hadroproduction predominately proceeds via its χc1(2P) component, we calculate the promptX(3872) polarization at the CERN LHC through next-to-leading order in αs within the factorization formalism of nonrelativistic QCD, including both the color-singlet P1[1]3 and color-octet S1[8]3 cc¯ Fock states. [...]

First Observation of the Radiative Decay Λb0Λγ / Aaij, R. ; Abellán Beteta, C. ; Adeva, B. ; Adinolfi, M. ; et al
The radiative decay Λb0Λγ is observed for the first time using a data sample of proton-proton collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.7 fb1 collected by the LHCb experiment at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. [...]

Studies of Beauty Suppression via Nonprompt D0 Mesons in Pb-Pb Collisions at sNN=5.02 TeV / Sirunyan, A. M. ; Tumasyan, A. ; Adam, W. ; Ambrogi, F. ; et al
The transverse momentum spectra of D0 mesons from b hadron decays are measured at midrapidity (|y|<1) in pp and Pb-Pb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center of mass energy of 5.02 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC. [...]
