Possible hints of new physics found

(Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona) An international research team has presented a global analysis of a set of observables related to one type of rare B decays measured in different experiments: mainly LHCb, Belle and also preliminary results from ATLAS and CMS. The discrepancy between the results and the Standard Model predictions points to possible New Physics. Two possible model candidates include the existence of a new fundamental particle such as a Z' or a leptoquark.
