Observation of the doubly charmed baryon $\Xi_{cc}^{++}$ / LHCb Collaboration
A highly significant structure is observed in the $\Lambda_c^+K^-\pi^+\pi^+$ mass spectrum, where the $\Lambda_c^+$ baryon is reconstructed in the decay mode $pK^-\pi^+$. The structure is consistent with originating from a weakly decaying particle, identified as the doubly charmed baryon $\Xi_{cc}^{++}$. [...]

Study of charmonium production in ${b}$-hadron decays and first evidence for the decay ${{{B}} ^0_{{s}}} \!\rightarrow \phi \phi \phi $ / LHCb Collaboration
Using decays to $\phi$-meson pairs, the inclusive production of charmonium states in $b$-hadron decays is studied with $pp$ collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0fb^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. Denoting by $B_C\equiv B(b\to CX)\times B(C\to\phi\phi)$ the inclusive branching fraction of a $b$ hadron to a charmonium state $C$ that decays into a pair of $\phi$ mesons, ratios $R^{C1}_{C2}\equiv B_{C1}/B_{C2}$ are determined as $R^{\chi_{c0}}_{\eta_c(1S)}=0.147\pm0.023\pm0.011$, $R^{\chi_{c1}}_{\eta_c (1S)}=0.073\pm0.016\pm0.006$, $R^{\chi_{c2}}_{\eta_c (1S)}=0.081\pm0.013\pm0.005$, $R^{\chi_{c1}}_{\chi_{c0}}=0.50\pm0.11\pm0.01$, $R^{\chi_{c2}}_{\chi_{c0}}=0.56\pm0.10\pm0.01$ and $R^{\eta_c (2S)}_{\eta_c(1S)}=0.040\pm0.011\pm0.004$.

Test of lepton universality with $B^{0} \rightarrow K^{*0}\ell^{+}\ell^{-}$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
A test of lepton universality, performed by measuring the ratio of the branching fractions of the $B^{0} \rightarrow K^{*0}\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ and $B^{0} \rightarrow K^{*0}e^{+}e^{-}$ decays, $R_{K^{*0}}$, is presented. The $K^{*0}$ meson is reconstructed in the final state $K^{+}\pi^{-}$, which is required to have an invariant mass within 100$\mathrm{\,MeV}c^2$ of the known $K^{*}(892)^{0}$ mass. [...]

Measurement of $B^{0}_{s}$ and $D^{-}_{s}$ meson lifetimes / LHCb Collaboration
We report on a measurement of the flavor-specific $B^{0}_{s}$ lifetime and of the $D^{-}_{s}$ lifetime using proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, collected by the LHCb experiment and corresponding to 3.0 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity. Approximately 407 000 $B^{0}_{s} \rightarrow D^{(*)-}_{s} \mu^{+}\nu_\mu $ decays are partially reconstructed in the $K^{+}K^{-}\pi^{-}\mu^{+}$ final state. [...]

Resonances and $CP$ violation in $B_s^0$ and $\overline{B}_s^0 \to J/\psi K^+K^-$ decays in the mass region above the $\phi(1020)$ / LHCb Collaboration
The decays of $B_s^0$ and $\overline{B}_s^0$ mesons into the $J/\psi K^+K^-$ final state are studied in the $K^+K^-$ mass region above the $\phi(1020)$ meson in order to determine the resonant substructure and measure the $CP$-violating phase, $\phi_s$, the decay width, $\Gamma_s$, and the width difference between light and heavy mass eigenstates, $\Delta\Gamma_s$. A decay-time dependent amplitude analysis is employed. [...]

Decays of $B^0$ and $B_{s}^0$ mesons to the charmless baryonic final states $p \overline{p} h^+ h^{\prime-}$, where $h$ and $h^\prime$ each denote a kaon or a pion, are searched for using the LHCb detector.

Observation of the decays $\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c1} p K^-$ and $\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c2} p K^-$ / LHCb Collaboration
The first observation of the decays $\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c1} p K^-$ and $\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c2} p K^-$ is reported using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0$ fb$^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment in $pp$ collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The following ratios of branching fractions are measured \begin{eqnarray*} \frac{{\cal B}(\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c1} p K^-)}{{\cal B}(\Lambda_b^0 \to J/\psi p K^-)} = 0.242 \pm 0.014 \pm 0.013 \pm 0.009, \frac{{\cal B}(\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c2} p K^-)}{{\cal B}(\Lambda_b^0 \to J/\psi p K^-)} = 0.248 \pm 0.020 \pm 0.014 \pm 0.009, \frac{{\cal B}(\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c2} p K^-)}{{\cal B}(\Lambda_b^0 \to \chi_{c1} p K^-)} = 1.02 \pm 0.10 \pm 0.02 \pm 0.05, \end{eqnarray*} where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic and the third due to the uncertainty on the branching fractions of the $\chi_{c1}\to J/\psi\gamma$ and $\chi_{c2} \to J/\psi\gamma$ decays.

Measurement of the $B^0_s\to\mu^+\mu^-$ branching fraction and effective lifetime and search for $B^0\to\mu^+\mu^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
A search for the rare decays $B^0_s\to\mu^+\mu^-$ and $B^0\to\mu^+\mu^-$ is performed at the LHCb experiment using data collected in $pp$ collisions corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 4.4 fb$^{-1}$.
