Three recent results from the LHCb experiment on direct CP violation in the B and Bs systems are presented. 1) A study of B± → J/ψπ± and B± → ψ(2S)π± decays was performed with data corresponding to 0.35 fb−1 of proton-proton collisions at √s = 7 TeV. No evidence of direct CP violation is seen. 2) Using the same data sample, also the K±π∓ final state is analysed. First evidence of CP...

Flavor sector is the largest contributor to the total number of free parameters within the standard model (SM) of elementary particle, a confluence of electroweak interactions and quantum chromodynamics. Therefore, it provides an excellent ground to test SM predictions and by doing so to look for possible new physics signature. We summarize recent results on an array of electroweak...

I present recent precision results from lattice QCD regarding the masses of light quarks and neutral kaon mixing. These calculations were carried out directly at the physical point with full control over all systematic uncertainties. The masses of the u, d and s quarks are determined with an accuracy of a few percent while the neutral kaon mixing parameter B_K has an overall uncertainty of...

LHCb's vast heavy flavour datasets provide a new opportunity for precision tests of the Standard Model and searches for New Physics such as new sources of CP violation in charm decays, and new physics contribution to highly suppressed decays such as D->mu mu.
