  1. Abstract A flavour-tagged time-dependent angular analysis of $${{B} ^0_{s}} \!\rightarrow {{J /\psi }} \phi $$ B s 0 → J / ψ ϕ decays is presented where the $${J /\psi }$$ J / ψ meson is reconstructed through its decay to an $$e ^+e ^-$$ e + e - pair. The analysis uses a sample of pp collision data recorded with the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and $$8\text {\,Te V} $$ 8 \,Te V , corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $$3 \text {\,fb} ^{-1} $$ 3 \,fb - 1 . The $$C\!P$$ C P -violating phase and lifetime parameters of the $${B} ^0_{s} $$ B s 0 system are measured to be $${\phi _{{s}}} =0.00\pm 0.28\pm 0.07\text {\,rad}$$ ϕ s = 0.00 ± 0.28 ± 0.07 \,rad , $${\Delta \Gamma _{{s}}} =0.115\pm 0.045\pm 0.011\text {\,ps} ^{-1} $$ Δ Γ s = 0.115 ± 0.045 ± 0.011 \,ps - 1 and $${\Gamma _{{s}}} =0.608\pm 0.018\pm 0.012\text {\,ps} ^{-1} $$ Γ s = 0.608 ± 0.018 ± 0.012 \,ps - 1 where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic.

  2. Abstract The first search for the doubly heavy baryon and a search for the baryon are performed using collision data collected via the experiment from 2016 to 2018 at a centre-of-mass energy of , corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.2 . The baryons are reconstructed via their decays to and . No significant excess is found for invariant masses between 6700 and 7300 , in a rapidity range from 2.0 to 4.5 and a transverse momentum range from 2 to 20 . Upper limits are set on the ratio of the and production cross-section times the branching fraction to ( ) relative to that of the ( ) baryon, for different lifetime hypotheses, at 95% confidence level. The upper limits range from to for the ( ) decay, and from to for the ( ) decay, depending on the considered mass and lifetime of the ( ) baryon.
  3. A bstract Searches for CP violation in the two-body decays $$ {D}_{(s)}^{+}\to {h}^{+}{\pi}^0 $$ D s + → h + π 0 and $$ {D}_{(s)}^{+}\to {h}^{+}\eta $$ D s + → h + η (where h + denotes a π + or K + meson) are performed using pp collision data collected by the LHCb experiment corresponding to either 9 fb − 1 or 6 fb − 1 of integrated luminosity. The π 0 and η mesons are reconstructed using the e + e − γ final state, which can proceed as three-body decays π 0 → e + e − γ and η → e + e − γ , or via the two-body decays π 0 → γγ and η → γγ followed by a photon conversion. The measurements are made relative to the control modes $$ {D}_{(s)}^{+}\to {K}_{\mathrm{S}}^0{h}^{+} $$ D s + → K S 0 h + to cancel the production and detection asymmetries. The CP asymmetries are measured to be $$ {\displaystyle \begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {\pi}^{+}{\pi}^0\right)=\left(-1.3\pm 0.9\pm 0.6\right)\%,\\ {}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {K}^{+}{\pi}^0\right)=\left(-3.2\pm 4.7\pm 2.1\right)\%,\\ {}\begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {\pi}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(-0.2\pm 0.8\pm 0.4\right)\%,\\ {}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {K}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(-6\pm 10\pm 4\right)\%,\\ {}\begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}_s^{+}\to {K}^{+}{\pi}^0\right)=\left(-0.8\pm 3.9\pm 1.2\right)\%,\\ {}\begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}_s^{+}\to {\pi}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(0.8\pm 0.7\pm 0.5\right)\%,\\ {}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}_s^{+}\to {K}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(0.9\pm 3.7\pm 1.1\right)\%,\end{array}\end{array}\end{array}\end{array}} $$more »A CP D + → π + π 0 = − 1.3 ± 0.9 ± 0.6 % , A CP D + → K + π 0 = − 3.2 ± 4.7 ± 2.1 % , A CP D + → π + η = − 0.2 ± 0.8 ± 0.4 % , A CP D + → K + η = − 6 ± 10 ± 4 % , A CP D s + → K + π 0 = − 0.8 ± 3.9 ± 1.2 % , A CP D s + → π + η = 0.8 ± 0.7 ± 0.5 % , A CP D s + → K + η = 0.9 ± 3.7 ± 1.1 % , where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic.

  4. A bstract The Cabibbo-suppressed decay $$ {\Lambda}_{\mathrm{b}}^0 $$ Λ b 0 → χ c1 pπ − is observed for the first time using data from proton-proton collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 6 fb − 1 , collected with the LHCb detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV.
