#### Friday Afternoon: Flavor Physics of Quarks and Leptons

- Mark Dayvon Goodsell (Ecole Polytechnique (FR))

The absolute neutrino mass scale is one of the big open questions in particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Different experimental approaches are currently pursued to answer this question. Cosmological observations and neutrinoless double beta decay experiments provide an indirect access to the absolute neutrino mass scale, but are model-dependent. Model independent, direct ways to...

The importance of the subject of the neutrinoless double-beta decay (0νββ-decay) is shortly maintained. The neutrino exchange mechanisms of the 0νββ-decay in left-right symmetric seesaw models with right-handed gauge bosons at TeV scale are presented. The corresponding 0νββ-decay nuclear matrix elements, which enter the decay rate, are calculated within the QRPA with isospin restoration and...

The measurement of the time-dependent CP violation parameters for $B$-meson decays is crucial for tightening the constraints on the unitarity triangle and for the search of new physics beyond the Standard Model. A clean environment for the study of $B$ decay channels is provided by $B$-factories. With a design luminosity of 8 $\cdot$ 10$^{35}$cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$, leading ultimately to an...

A time-dependent analysis of the $B$ meson decays governed by $b\to c\overline{u}d$

quark transition allows to measure the CKM angle $\varphi_1$ with a negligible effects

of strong interactions. The binned Dalitz plot technique is a promising approach for a

model-independent measurement of the angle $\varphi_1$ in the $B^0\to \overline{D}{}^0\pi^0$

and $B^0\to \overline{D}{}^0\pi^+\pi^-$...

High-precision measurements performed by the LHCb collaboration have opened a new era in flavour physics and more generally in high precision measurements. LHCb has already performed crucial measurements in b physics, spectroscopy, rare decays and CP violation, but a challenging Phase-I upgrade program of the LHCb detector planned for the LHC Run3 is already on the way. These measurements will...
