Type of Event (for grouping events):

The Standard Model is a well-tested description of fundamental particles
and their interactions. It predicts that particles known as beauty
quarks should decay into final states involving either muons or
electrons at equal rates. However, recent data from CERN’s LHCb
experiment suggests that this is not the case. Could this be evidence
for the long-awaited “new physics”? Or are the measurements or the
Standard Model predictions not all that they seem?
