Expanding Model Independent Approaches for Measuring the CKM angle $\gamma$ at LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2017-586 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Prouve, Claire Model independent approaches to measuring the CKM angle $\gamma$ in $B\rightarrow DK$ decays at LHCb are explored. In particular, we consider the case where the $D$ meson decays into a final state with four hadrons. Using four-body final states such as $\pi^+ \pi^- \pi^+ \pi^-$, $K^+ \pi^- \pi^+ \pi^-$ and $K^+ K^- \pi^+ \pi^-$ in addition to traditional 2 and 3 body states and has the potential to significantly improve to the overall constraint on $\gamma$. There is a significant systematic uncertainty associated with modelling the complex phase of the $D$ decay amplitude across the five-dimensional phase space of the four body decay. It is therefore important to replace these model-dependent quantities with model-independent parameters as input for the $\gamma$ measurement. These model independent parameters have been measured using quantum-correlated $\psi(3770) \rightarrow D^0 \overline{D^0}$ decays collected by the CLEO-c experiment, and, for $D\rightarrow K^+ \pi^- \pi^+ \pi^-$, with $D^0-\overline{D^0}$ mixing at LHCb. This poster will give a brief overview the status and prospects of $\gamma$ measurements with $B\rightarrow DK$, $D\rightarrow$ 4-body using a combination of LHCb and charm factory data, with focus on the $D$ meson decays to four pions.

Laser photodetachment of radioactive ions: towards the determination of the electronegativity of astatine
 Reference: Poster-2017-585 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Rothe, Sebastian; Sundberg, Julia; Welander, Jakob Emanuel; Chrysalidis, Katerina; Day Goodacre, Thomas [...] Negatively charged ions are mainly stabilized through the electron correlation effect. A measure of the stability of a negative ion is the electron affinity, which the energy gain by attaching an electron to a neutral atom. This fundamental quantity is, due to the almost general lack of bound excited states, the only atomic property that can be determined with high accuracy for negative ions. We will present the results of the first laser photodetachment studies of radioactive negative ions at CERN-ISOLDE. The photodetachment threshold for the radiogenic iodine isotope 128I was measured successfully, demonstrating the performance of the upgraded GANDALPH experimental beam line. The first detection of photo-detached astatine atoms marks a milestone towards the determination of the EA of this radioactive element. © CERN Geneva Access to files

A stand-alone track reconstruction algorithm for the scintillating fibre tracker at the LHCb upgrade
 Reference: Poster-2017-584 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Quagliani, Renato The LHCb upgrade detector project foresees the presence of a scintillating fiber tracker (SciFi) to be used during the LHC Run III, starting in 2020. The instantaneous luminosity will be increased up to $2\times10^{33}$, five times larger than in Run II and a full software event reconstruction will be performed at the full bunch crossing rate by the trigger. The new running conditions, and the tighter timing constraints in the software trigger, represent a big challenge for track reconstruction. This poster presents the design and performance of a novel algorithm that has been developed to reconstruct track segments using solely hits from the SciFi. This algorithm is crucial for the reconstruction of tracks originating from long-lived particles such as $K_{S}^{0}$ and $\Lambda$ and allows to greatly enhance the physics potential and capabilities of the LHCb upgrade when compared to its previous implementation.

Measurement of matter-antimatter differences in beauty baryon decays at LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2017-583 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Merli, Andrea Differences in the behaviour of matter and antimatter have been observed in $K$ and $B$ meson decays, but not yet in any baryon decay. Such differences are associated with the non-invariance of fundamental interactions under the combined charge-conjugation and parity transformations, known as $C\!P$ violation. Using data from the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, a search is made for $C\!P$-violating asymmetries in the decay angle distributions of $\Lambda_b^0$ baryons decaying to $p\pi^-\pi^+\pi^-$ and $p\pi^-K^+K^-m$ final states. These four-body hadronic decays are a promising place to search for sources of $C\!P$ violation both within and beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. We find evidence for $C\!P$ violation in $\Lambda_b^0$ to $p\pi^-\pi^+\pi^-$ decays with a statistical significance corresponding to 3.3 standard deviations including systematic uncertainties. This represents the first evidence for $C\!P$ violation in the baryon sector. Related links:LHCC Poster Session © CERN Geneva Access to files

Prospects for $D^{0} \rightarrow h^+h^- \mu^+ \mu^-$ $(h=K,\pi)$ decays at LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2017-582 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Mitzel, Dominik Stefan This poster presents the current experimental status and prospects for the search of rare four-body charm decays with final states consisting of two oppositely charged kaons or pions and two oppositely charged muons at LHCb.

Search for $\Lambda_{b}^{0}$ and $\Xi_{b}^{0}$ charmless 4-body decays at LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2017-581 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Vernet, Maxime Quentin The Run I data recorded by the LHCb experiment are analyzed to search for fully charged charmless four-body decays of $b$-flavoured neutral baryons $\Lambda_{b}^{0}$ or $\Xi_{b}^{0}$ . This poster presents the analysis to establish the signals, specially the simultaneous fit model strategy. The proton and antiproton spectra are added in order to allow the determinination of the signal decay branching fractions which are still to be determined. The individual proton and antiproton spectra are kept blinded for the purpose of the forthcoming $\Delta A_{CP}$ measurements of the modes of interest.

Fast simulation options in LHCb from ReDecay to fully parametrised
 Reference: Poster-2017-580 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Muller, Dominik; Siddi, Benedetto Gianluca With the steady increase in the precision of flavour physics measurements with data from Run 2 of the LHC, the LHCb experiment requires simulated data samples of ever increasing magnitude to study the detector response in detail. However, relying on an increase of computing resources available for the production of simulated samples will not suffice to achieve this goal. Therefore, multiple efforts are currently being investigated to reduce the time needed to simulate an event. This talk presents a summary of those efforts in LHCb, focusing on the newest developments: re-using parts of previously simulated events and a fully parametric detector description using the DELPHES framework. The former merges a simulation of an underlying event multiple times with signal decays simulated separately, achieving an order of magnitude increase in speed with identical precision. The latter provides a parametric solution replacing the full, GEANT4-based simulation, including the smearing of particles' energies, efficiencies and resolutions according to the detector response in a highly-customizable way.

Enabling Real-Time Analysis at LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2017-579 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Govorkova, Katya A new streaming strategy of the LHCb experiment includes the possibility to perform the physics analysis with candidates reconstructed in the trigger, thus bypassing the offline reconstruction. In the Turbo stream the trigger writes out a compact summary of physics objects containing all information necessary for analyses. This allows an increased output rate and thus higher average efficiencies. The Turbo stream was introduced in 2015 and has allowed for and expanded physics program in Run 2 of the LHC.

Measurement of $CP$ Violation in $B^0 \to D^{(*)}D$ decays at LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2017-578 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Belloli, Nicoletta The measurement of parameters associated with $CP$ Violation in $B^0 \to D^+D^-$ and $B^0 \to D^{+*}D^-$ decays are presented. The first analysis is concluded and the values obtained from a fit to the decay time distribution of flavor-tagged candidates provides an evidence of $CP$ violation at a significance level of 4.0 standard deviations, allowing to constrain the phase shift due to higher-order SM corrections to the world’s most precise value. The analysis associated to the second channel is ongoing and preliminary studies performed on the sensitivity to $CP$ observables show that LHCb can rival the results obtained by previous experiments.

Search for the decay $B^{0}_{s} \to \eta^{\prime}\phi$ at LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2017-577 Created: 2017. -1 p Creator(s): Giani, Sebastiana A search for the charmless $B^{0}_{s} \to \eta^{\prime}\phi$ decay is performed using $pp$ collision data collected by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of $7$ and $8$ TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$. No signal is observed and upper limits on the $B^{0}_{s} \to \eta^{\prime}\phi$ branching fraction are set to $0.82\times 10^{-6}$ at $90\%$ and $1.01\times 10^{-6}$ at $95\%$ confidence level.
