Flavour physics and implication for new phenomena


Isidori, G (2016). Flavour physics and implication for new phenomena. In: Maiani, Luciano; Rolandi, Luigi. Standard Theory of Particle Physics: Essays to Celebrate CERN's 60th Anniversary. Singapore: World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte. Ltd., 339-356.

Abstract

Flavour physics represents one of the most interesting and, at the same time, less understood sector of the Standard Theory. On the one hand, the peculiar pattern of quark and lepton masses, and their mixing angles, may be the clue to some new dynamics occurring at high-energy scales. On the other hand, the strong suppression of flavour-changing neutral-current processes, predicted by the Standard Theory and confirmed by experiments, represents a serious challenge to extend the Theory. This article reviews both these aspects of flavour physics from a theoretical perspective.
