Observation of the doubly charmed baryon decay $ {\varXi}_{cc}^{++}\to {\varXi}_c^{\prime +}{\pi}^{+} $ / LHCb Collaboration
The $\it{\Xi_{cc}^{++}\to \Xi_{c}^{'+}\pi^{+}}$ decay is observed using proton-proton collisions collected by the LHCb experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of $13\mathrm{\,Te\kern -0.1em V}$, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $5.4\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$. The $\it{\Xi_{cc}^{++}\to \Xi_{c}^{'+}\pi^{+}}$ decay is reconstructed partially, where the photon from the $\it{\Xi_{c}^{'+} \to \Xi_{c}^{+}\gamma}$ decay is not reconstructed and the $pK^-\pi^+$ final state of the $\it{\Xi_{c}^{+}}$ baryon is employed.

Observation of the decay $ \Lambda_b^0\rightarrow \Lambda_c^+\tau^-\overline{\nu}_{\tau}$ / LHCb Collaboration
The first observation of the semileptonic $b$-baryon decay $ \Lambda_b^0 \rightarrow \Lambda_c^+ \tau^-\overline{\nu}_{\tau}$, with a significance of $6.1\,\sigma$, is reported using a data sample corresponding to 3 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity, collected by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8~TeV at the LHC. The $\tau^-$ lepton is reconstructed in the hadronic decay to three charged pions. [...]

Observation of the $B^0\rightarrow\overline{D}^{*0}K^{+}\pi^{-}$ and $B_s^0\rightarrow\overline{D}^{*0}K^{-}\pi^{+}$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
The first observations of $B^0\rightarrow\overline{D}^{*}(2007)^{0}K^{+}\pi^{-}$ and $B_s^0\rightarrow\overline{D}^{*}(2007)^{0}K^{-}\pi^{+}$ decays are presented, and their branching fractions relative to that of the $B^0\rightarrow\overline{D}^{*}(2007)^{0}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ decay are reported. These modes can potentially be used to investigate the spectroscopy of charm and charm-strange resonances and to determine the angle $\gamma$ of the CKM unitarity triangle. [...]

Observation of $\Lambda_b^0\rightarrow D^+ p \pi^-\pi^-$ and $\Lambda_b^0\rightarrow D^{*+} p \pi^-\pi^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
The multihadron decays $\Lambda_b^0\rightarrow D^+ p \pi^-\pi^-$ and $\Lambda_b^0\rightarrow D^{*+} p \pi^-\pi^-$ are observed in data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3fb$^{-1}$, collected in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8TeV by the LHCb detector. Using the decay $\Lambda_b^0\rightarrow \Lambda_c^+ \pi^+ \pi^-\pi^-$ as a normalisation channel, the ratio of branching fractions is measured to be

Measurement of the photon polarization in $\Lambda_{b}^{0}$ $\to$ $\Lambda$ $\gamma$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
The photon polarization in $b\to s\gamma$ transitions is measured for the first time in radiative b-baryon decays exploiting the unique spin structure of $\Lambda_{b}^{0}\to\Lambda\gamma$ decays. A data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $6\;\mathrm{fb^{-1}}$ collected by the LHCb experiment in $pp$ collisions at a center-of-mass energy of $13\;\mathrm{TeV}$ is used. [...]

Searches for rare $ {B}_s^0 $ and B$^{0}$ decays into four muons / LHCb Collaboration
Searches for rare $B_s^0$ and $B^0$ decays into four muons are performed using proton-proton collision data recorded by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9 $\text{fb}^{-1}$. Direct decays and decays via light scalar and $J/\psi$ resonances are considered. [...]

Study of $ {\mathrm{B}}_{\mathrm{c}}^{+} $ decays to charmonia and three light hadrons / LHCb Collaboration
Using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $9fb^{-1}$ collected with the LHCb detector, seven decay modes of the $B_c^+$ meson into a $J/\psi$ or $\psi(2S)$ meson and three charged hadrons, kaons or pions, are studied. The decays $B_c^+\rightarrow ( \psi(2S) \rightarrow J/\psi \pi^+ \pi^-)\pi^+ $, $B_c^+\rightarrow \psi(2S)\pi^+\pi^+\pi^-$, $B_c^+\rightarrow J/\psi K^+\pi^+\pi^-$ and $B_c^+\rightarrow J/\psi K^+K^+K^-$ are observed for the first time, and evidence for the $B_c^+\rightarrow \psi(2S)K^+K^-\pi^+$ decay is found, where $J/\psi$ and $\psi(2S)$ mesons are reconstructed in their dimuon decay modes.

Tests of lepton universality using $B^0\to K^0_S \ell^+ \ell^-$ and $B^+\to K^{*+} \ell^+ \ell^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
Tests of lepton universality in $B^0\to K^0_S \ell^+ \ell^-$ and $B^+\to K^{*+}\ell^+\ell^-$ decays where $\ell$ is either an electron or a muon are presented. The differential branching fractions of $B^0\to K^0_S e^+ e^-$ and $B^+\to K^{*+} e^+ e^-$ decays are measured in intervals of the dilepton invariant mass squared. [...]

Observation of Two New Excited $\Xi_b^0$ States Decaying to $\Lambda^0_b K^- \pi^+$ / LHCb Collaboration
Two narrow resonant states are observed in the ${\it\Lambda}_b^0 K^-\pi^+$ mass spectrum using a data sample of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13$\rm TeV$, collected by the LHCb experiment and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $6~{\rm fb}^{-1}$. The minimal quark content of the ${\it\Lambda}_b^0 K^-\pi^+$ system indicates that these are excited ${\it\Xi}_b^0$ baryons. [...]
