Description

Rare decays are powerful probes for Physics beyond the Standard Model
(SM), as new particles can have a large impact on physics observables.
Recent results on lepton universality tests and measurements of
branching fractions and angular distributions of rare b->sll decays have
shown tensions with the SM predictions. The LHCb experiment is ideally
suited for the study of the these flavour anomalies, due to its large
acceptance, precise vertexing and powerful particle identification
capabilities. The latest results from LHCb on the flavour anomalies will
be presented and their interpretation will be discussed.

Parallel Session BSM aspects of Flavour and Neutrino Physics
