The State of the B Anomalies

by Wolfgang Altmannshofer (UC Santa Cruz)


For several years, various experimental results on B meson decays show persistent discrepancies with respect to Standard Model expectations. Discrepancies are observed in branching ratios, angular distributions, and lepton flavor universality ratios. I will review the status of those discrepancies, discuss possible new physics explanations, and outline the prospects of resolving them with expected experimental data.
