 Study of $\Upsilon$ production in $p$Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=8.16$ TeV / LHCb Collaboration The production of $\Upsilon (nS)$ mesons ($n=1,2,3$) in $p$Pb and Pb$p$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=8.16$ TeV is measured by the LHCb experiment, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 31.8 nb$^{-1}$. The $\Upsilon (nS)$ mesons are reconstructed through their decays into two opposite-sign muons.

 Measurement of the charm-mixing parameter $y_{CP}$ / LHCb Collaboration A measurement of the charm-mixing parameter $y_{CP}$ using $D^0 \to K^+ K^-$, $D^0 \to \pi^+ \pi^-$, and $D^0 \to K^- \pi^+$ decays is reported. The $D^0$ mesons are required to originate from semimuonic decays of $B^-$ and $\overline{B}^0$ mesons.

 Evidence for an $\eta_c(1S) \pi^-$ resonance in $B^0 \to \eta_c(1S) K^+\pi^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration A Dalitz plot analysis of $B^0 \to \eta_c(1S) K^+\pi^-$ decays is performed using data samples of $pp$ collisions collected with the LHCb detector at centre-of-mass energies of $\sqrt{s}=7,~8$ and $13$ TeV, corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of $4.7~\text{fb}^{-1}$. A satisfactory description of the data is obtained when including a contribution representing an exotic $\eta_c(1S) \pi^-$ resonant state.

 Angular moments of the decay $\Lambda_b^0 \rightarrow \Lambda \mu^{+} \mu^{-}$ at low hadronic recoil / LHCb Collaboration An analysis of the angular distribution of the decay $\Lambda_b^0 \rightarrow \Lambda \mu^{+} \mu^{-}$ is presented, using data collected with the LHCb detector between 2011 and 2016 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately $5\,fb^{-1}$. Angular observables are determined using a moment analysis of the angular distribution at low hadronic recoil, corresponding to the dimuon invariant mass squared range $15 < q^{2} < 20\, GeV^2/c^4$.
