Evidence for the rare decay $\Sigma^+ \to p \mu^+ \mu^-$ /LHCb Collaboration
A search for the rare decay $\Sigma^+ \to p \mu^+ \mu^-$ is performed using $pp$ collision data recorded by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies $\sqrt{s} = 7$ and $8 TeV$, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3 ~ \text {fb}^{-1}$. An excess of events is observed with respect to the background expectations with a signal significance of 4.0 standard deviations [...]

Updated limit for the decay $K_{\rm\scriptscriptstyle S}^0\rightarrow\mu^+\mu^-$ /LHCb Collaboration
A search is performed for the decay $K_{\rm\scriptscriptstyle S}^0\rightarrow\mu^+\mu^-$, using the data sample of $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV collected by the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in 2012, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.0 fb$^{-1}$. In the Standard Model, the decay is expected to be suppressed at a level below the experimental sensitivity, but could be enhanced by new sources of $CP$ violation [...]

Search for the rare decays $B^0_{(s)}\to\tau^+\tau^-$ / De Bruyn, Kristof (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (FR)) /LHCb Collaboration
A search for the rare decays $B^0_{(s)}\to\tau^+\tau^-$ is performed using $pp$ collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb detector in 2011 and 2012 at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, respectively. The $\tau$ leptons are reconstructed through the hadronic decay $\tau^+\to\pi^+\pi^-\pi^+\overline\nu_{\tau}$. [...]

$CP$-violating asymmetries from the decay-time distribution of prompt $D^0 \to K^+ K^-$ and $D^0 \to \pi^+\pi^-$ decays in the full $\mbox{LHCb}$ Run 1 data sample. Measurement using unbinned, acceptance corrected decay-time. /LHCb Collaboration
A study of indirect $CP$ violation in $D^0$ mesons is presented through a measurement of the asymmetry of the effective decay widths of $D^0$ and $\overline{D}^0$ mesons to $CP$ eigenstates. This observable, known as $A_{\Gamma}$, is measured with the $CP$ eigenstates $K^+ K^-$ and $\pi^+ \pi^-$ using data collected in $pp$ collisions by the LHCb experiment in 2012 with an integrated luminosity of $1.9\ \rm fb^{-1}$.

$CP$-violating asymmetries from the decay-time distribution of prompt $D^0 \to K^+K^-$ and $D^0 \to \pi^+\pi^-$ decays in the full LHCb Run~1 data sample. Measurement using yield asymmetries in bins of decay time. /LHCb Collaboration
Time-dependent $CP$ asymmetries in the decay rates of the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decays $D^0 \to K^+K^-$ and $D^0 \to \pi^+\pi^-$ are measured in $pp$ collision data at centre-of-mass energies of $7$ and $8\,\mathrm{TeV}$ collected by the LHCb detector, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$. The strong-interaction decay $D^{*+} \to D^0\pi^+$ is used to infer the flavour of the $D^0$ mesons at production. [...]

Dalitz plot analysis of the $D^+ \rightarrow K^- K^+ K^+$ decay with the isobar model /LHCb Collaboration
This note presents a study of the $K^-K^+$ S-wave amplitude in doubly Cabibbo-suppressed ${D^+ \rightarrow K^- K^+ K^+}$ decays performed using $2 \text{fb}^{-1}$ of data collected by the LHCb detector in $pp$ collisions at $8~\text{TeV}$ centre-of-mass energy. The Dalitz plot is studied under the assumption of the isobar model for resonance scattering [...]

Central exclusive production of $J/\psi$ and $\psi(2S)$ mesons in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV /LHCb Collaboration
A measurement is made of the central exclusive production of $J/\psi$ and $\psi(2S)$ mesons in $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. Backgrounds are significantly reduced compared to previous measurements made at lower energies through the use of new forward shower counters [...]

Search for $H^0 \rightarrow b \bar{b}$ or $c \bar{c}$ in association with a $W$ or $Z$ boson in the forward region of $pp$ collisions /LHCb Collaboration
The LHCb dataset consisting of proton--proton collisions recorded at $\sqrt{s}=8$ $\mathrm{TeV}$, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.98 $\pm$ 0.02 $fb^{-1}$, is used to search for a Higgs boson with a mass of 125 $\mathrm{GeV}$, produced in association with a $W$ or $Z$ boson and decaying to a $b \bar{b}$ or $c \bar{c}$ pair. The final state considered is a pair of heavy flavour tagged jets and one or two high $p_T$ leptons (electrons or muons) [...]

The claim by the D0 collaboration of the observation of a tetraquark state, dubbed the $X(5568)$, in the $B_s^0\pi^\pm$ invariant mass distribution is investigated. The analysis is based on a data sample recorded with the LHCb detector corresponding to $3 \ {\rm fb}^{-1}$ of $pp$ collision data at $\sqrt{s} = 7$ and $8 \ {\rm TeV}$ [...]
