Exploring the loose ends of the Standard Model at LHCb

Author: Carla Marín


Abstract: The LHC at CERN is the most powerful particle accelerator at present and can help in disentangling the existence of processes beyond the description of the Standard Model of Particle Physics. The Experimental High Energy Physics group of the ICCUB works at one of its four main detectors: LHCb. The main goals of this experiment are the study of b and c hadron properties and the understanding of the asymmetry between matter and antimatter and its origin. This talk will give an overview of the main achievements of the LHCb experiment with the data accumulated during Runs I and II of the LHC with special focus on radiative b-hadron decays, in which our group is specialised.
