        Global fit of b->sll processes, an update: A further step towards New Physics Discovery 45m

        In this talk we update the status of the global fit including the set of all coherent deviations or anomalies observed, with particular emphasis on the recently measured observables that violate lepton flavor universality (LFU). We discuss the properties of the new LFU observables. We focus on the model independent links and implications between different types of LFU violating observables of b->s and b->c type. We also show how the dominant LFU violating scenario reproduces exactly the anomaly in B->K*mumu at large-recoil dismissing all naïve arguments based on long distance charm contributions.

        QED corrections to Bs-> mu mu 30m

        In my talk, I will report on the computation of QED radiative corrections to the rare leptonic decay of strange B mesons. In the previous literature, only the QED corrections above the m_b scale have been included. I will outline an approach to compute corrections below the m_b scale using soft-collinear effective theory. It reveals an unexpected enhancement due to a "non-local annihilation" effect. Numerically, the enhanced corrections are thus far larger than previously estimated and therefore they constitute a necessary ingredient in precise theoretical prediction for the B_s -> mu^+ mu^- decay rate as shown in arXiv:1708.09152.

        The Global And Modular BSM Inference Tool (GAMBIT) is a new, open-source tool for performing global statistical fits of generic models of BSM physics, and the GAMBIT collaboration are also actively involved in performing tests of new physics models with the tool. I will present highlights of our recent results, including (potentially) studies of weak- and GUT-scale supersymmetric models, studies of Higgs portal dark matter scenarios, and studies of axion models.

        The Return of Kaon Flavour Physics 45m

        Kaon flavour physics has played in the 1960s and 1970s a very important role in the construction of the Standard Model (SM) and in the 1980s and 1990s in its tests in particular with the help of CP violation in $K_L\to\pi\pi$ decays represented by $\varepsilon_K$ and the ratio $\varepsilon^\prime/varepsilon$. In this millennium this role has been taken over by $B_{s,d}$ and $D$ mesons. However there is no doubt that in the coming years we will witness the return of kaon flavour physics with the highlights being the measurements of the theoretically clean branching ratios for rare decays $\K\to\pi\nu\bar$ and the improved theory of the ratio $\varepsilon^\prime/varepsilon$. $, of the $K^0-\bar K^0$ mixing mass difference $\Delta M_K$ and of the decays $K_L\to\mu^+\mu^-$ and $K_L\to\pi^0\ell^+\ell^-$. They all are very sensitive to new physics (NP) contributions and the correlations between them should help us to identify new dynamics at very short distance scales. But in order to distinguish between various NP scenarios and study flavour symmetries and their breakdown, correlations with $B_{s,d}^0-\bar B_{s,d}^0$ mixing observables and decays like $B_{s,d}\to \mu^+\mu^-$, $B\to K(K^)\ell^+\ell^-$, $B\to K(K^)\nu\bar\nu$ and $B\to D(D^*)\tau\nu_\tau$ will be crucial. This talk summarizes several aspects of this exciting field.
