 Measurement of forward $W$ and $Z$ boson production in association with jets in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV / LHCb collaboration The production of $W$ and $Z$ bosons in association with jets is studied in the forward region of proton-proton collisions collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 8~TeV by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.98 $\pm$ 0.02 fb$^{-1}$. The $W$ boson is identified using its decay to a muon and a neutrino, while the $Z$ boson is identified through its decay to a muon pair.

 Measurement of the properties of the $\Xi_b^{*0}$ baryon / LHCb Collaboration We perform a search for near-threshold $\Xi_b^0$ resonances decaying to $\Xi_b^- \pi^+$ in a sample of proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb experiment. We observe one resonant state, with the following properties: \begin{eqnarray*} m(\Xi_b^{*0}) - m(\Xi_b^-) - m(\pi^+) &=& 15.727 \pm 0.068 \, (\mathrm{stat}) \pm 0.023 \, (\mathrm{syst}) \, \mathrm{MeV}/c^2, \\ \Gamma(\Xi_b^{*0}) &=& 0.90 \pm 0.16 \, (\mathrm{stat}) \pm 0.08 \, (\mathrm{syst}) \, \mathrm{MeV} [...] arXiv:1604.03896; LHCB-PAPER-2016-010; CERN-EP-2016-082.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 18 p. - Published in : J.
