Determination of $V_{ub}$

Aoife Bharucha and Patrick Owen

These lectures aim to cover in a hopefully thorough and systematic way the determination of the CKM matrix element Vub.

The GDR-Intensity lectures: from theory to experiment and everything in between.

This series of lectures, organized in the framework of the GDR-InF, is devoted to topics currently of considerable interest in the high-intensity frontier. Two experts, one theorist and one experimentalist, will dissect a given subject entirely on the blackboard, starting from the basics. The lectures are aimed at people in the early stages of their research career, in particular PhD students 
and postdocs, but more senior researchers are more than welcome to attend.
