Measurement of the CKM angle $\gamma$ from a combination of LHCb results / LHCb collaboration
A combination of measurements sensitive to the CKM angle $\gamma$ from LHCb is performed. The inputs are from analyses of time-integrated $B^{+}\rightarrow DK^+$, $B_{d}^{0} \rightarrow D K^{*0}$, $B_{d} \rightarrow D K^+ \pi^-$ and $B^{+} \rightarrow D K^+\pi^+\pi^-$ tree-level decays. [...]

Observation of the decay $B^0_s \to \phi\pi^+\pi^-$ and evidence for $B^0 \to \phi\pi^+\pi^-$ / LHCb collaboration
The first observation of the rare decay Bs0→ϕπ+π- and evidence for B0→ϕπ+π- are reported, using pp collision data recorded by the LHCb detector at center-of-mass energies s=7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3  fb-1. The branching fractions in the π+π- invariant mass range 400<m(π+π-)<1600  MeV/c2 are [3.48±0.23±0.17±0.35]×10-6 and [1.82±0.25±0.41±0.14]×10-7 for Bs0→ϕπ+π- and B0→ϕπ+π- respectively, where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic and from the normalization mode Bs0→ϕϕ.

Search for the $C\!P$-violating strong decays $\eta \to \pi^+\pi^-$ and $\eta^\prime(958) \to \pi^+\pi^-$ / LHCb collaboration
A search for the $C\!P$-violating strong decays $\eta \to \pi^+\pi^-$ and $\eta^\prime(958) \to \pi^+\pi^-$ has been performed using approximately $2.5 \times 10^{7}$ events of each of the decays $D^+ \to \pi^+\pi^+\pi^-$ and $D_s^+ \to \pi^+\pi^+\pi^-$, recorded by the LHCb experiment. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collision data recorded during LHC Run 1 and 0.3 fb$^{-1}$ recorded in Run 2. [...]

Jet-like correlations with neutral pion triggers in pp and central Pb-Pb collisions at 2.76 TeV / ALICE Collaboration
We present measurements of two-particle correlations with neutral pion trigger particles of transverse momenta $8 < p_{\mathrm{T}}^{\rm trig} < 16~\mathrm{GeV}/c$ and associated charged particles of $0.5 < p_{\mathrm{T}}^{\rm assoc} < 10~\mathrm{GeV}/c$ versus the azimuthal angle difference $\Delta\varphi$ at midrapidity in pp and central Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=2.76$ TeV with ALICE. The new measurements exploit associated charged hadrons down to $0.5~\mathrm{GeV}/c$, which significantly extends our previous measurement that only used charged hadrons above $3~\mathrm{GeV}/c$.

Measurement of $CP$ violation in $B^0 \!\rightarrow D^+ D^-$ decays / LHCb collaboration
The $C\!P$ violation observables $S$ and $C$ in the decay channel $B^0 \!\rightarrow D^+ D^-$ are determined from a sample of proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of $7$ and $8$ TeV, collected by the LHCb experiment and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3~ {\text {fb}}^{-1}$. The observable $S$ describes $C\!P$ violation in the interference between mixing and the decay amplitude, and $C$ parametrizes direct $C\!P$ violation in the decay. [...]
