 First branching fraction measurement of the suppressed decay $\Xi_c^0\to \pi^-\Lambda_c^+$ / LHCb Collaboration The $\Xi_c^0$ baryon is unstable and usually decays into charmless final states by the $c \to s u\overline{d}$ transition. It can, however, also disintegrate into a $\pi^-$ meson and a $\Lambda_c^+$ baryon via $s$ quark decay or via $cs\to d c$ weak scattering.

 Searches for low-mass dimuon resonances / LHCb Collaboration Searches are performed for low-mass dimuon resonances, $X$, produced in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.1 fb$^{-1}$ and collected with the LHCb detector. The $X \to \mu^+\mu^-$ decays can be either prompt-like or displaced from the proton-proton collision, where in both cases the requirements placed on the event and the assumptions made about the production mechanisms are kept as minimal as possible.

 Search for $CP$ violation in $\Xi_c^+\rightarrow pK^-\pi^+$ decays using model-independent techniques / LHCb Collaboration A first search for $CP$ violation in the Cabibbo-suppressed $\Xi_c^+\rightarrow pK^-\pi^+$ decay is performed using both a binned and an unbinned model-independent technique in the Dalitz plot. The studies are based on a sample of proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0~\rm fb^{-1}$, and collected by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of $7$ and $8~\rm TeV$.

 Precision measurement of the $B_{c}^{+}$ meson mass / LHCb Collaboration A precision measurement of the $B_{c}^{+}$ meson mass is performed using proton-proton collision data collected with the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of $7, 8$ and $13$ TeV, corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of $9.0$ fb$^{-1}$. The $B_{c}^{+}$ mesons are reconstructed via the decays $B_{c}^{+} \rightarrow J\mskip -3mu/\mskip -2mu\psi\mskip 2mu \pi^+$, $B_{c}^{+} \rightarrow J\mskip -3mu/\mskip -2mu\psi\mskip 2mu \pi^+ \pi^- \pi^+$, $B_{c}^{+} \rightarrow J\mskip -3mu/\mskip -2mu\psi\mskip 2mu p \bar{p} \pi^+$, $B_{c}^{+} \rightarrow J\mskip -3mu/\mskip -2mu\psi\mskip 2mu D_{s}^{+}$, $B_{c}^{+} \rightarrow J\mskip -3mu/\mskip -2mu\psi\mskip 2mu D^{0} K^{+}$ and $B_{c}^{+} \rightarrow B_{s}^{0} \pi^+$.

 Observation of new $\Xi_c^0$ baryons decaying to $\Lambda_c^+K^-$ / LHCb Collaboration The $\Lambda_c^+K^-$ mass spectrum is studied with a data sample of $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.6 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb experiment. Three $\Xi_c^0$ states are observed with a large significance and their masses and natural widths are measured to be \begin{eqnarray*} m(\Xi_c(2923)^0)&=& 2923.04 \pm 0.25 \pm 0.20 \pm 0.14 ~\mathrm{MeV},\\ \Gamma(\Xi_c(2923)^0) &=& 7.1 \pm 0.8 \pm 1.8~\mathrm{MeV}, \end{eqnarray*} \begin{eqnarray*} m(\Xi_c(2939)^0) &=& 2938.55 \pm 0.21 \pm 0.17 \pm 0.14~\mathrm{MeV},\\ \Gamma(\Xi_c(2939)^0) &=& 10.2 \pm 0.8 \pm 1.1~\mathrm{MeV}, \end{eqnarray*} \begin{eqnarray*} m(\Xi_c(2965)^0) &=& 2964.88 \pm 0.26 \pm 0.14 \pm 0.14~\mathrm{MeV}, \\ \Gamma(\Xi_c(2965)^0) &=& 14.1 \pm 0.9 \pm 1.3~\mathrm{MeV}, \end{eqnarray*} where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and due to the limited knowledge of the $\Lambda_c^+$ mass.
