Abstract

The existence of three flavors of fundamental fermions is one of the great mysteries of the standard model of particle physics. At the same time it is at the basis of a variety of exciting phenomena, such as CP violation and neutrino flavor oscillations. Hints are mounting that the assumption of lepton universality and charged lepton flavour conservation, as currently incorporated in the standard model, may not be valid. We report on our test of charged lepton flavour conservation in the decay of B mesons, as measured at LHCb.
