The Vcb puzzle

by Dr Marzia Bordone (CERN)




The study of CKM elements and CKM unitarity constitutes a robust test of physics within and beyond the Standard Model.  In particular, the element Vcb, which is probed through processes mediated by b->c underlying flavour changing transitions, shows some tensions in different channels used for its extractions. I will review some of the most recent results on it, discussing determinations from both inclusive and exclusive processes.
