Observation of new $\Xi_c^0$ baryons decaying to $\Lambda_c^+K^-$ / LHCb Collaboration
The $\Lambda_c^+K^-$ mass spectrum is studied with a data sample of $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.6 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb experiment. Three $\Xi_c^0$ states are observed with a large significance and their masses and natural widths are measured to be \begin{eqnarray*} m(\Xi_c(2923)^0)&=& 2923.04 \pm 0.25 \pm 0.20 \pm 0.14 ~\mathrm{MeV},\\ \Gamma(\Xi_c(2923)^0) &=& 7.1 \pm 0.8 \pm 1.8~\mathrm{MeV}, \end{eqnarray*} \begin{eqnarray*} m(\Xi_c(2939)^0) &=& 2938.55 \pm 0.21 \pm 0.17 \pm 0.14~\mathrm{MeV},\\ \Gamma(\Xi_c(2939)^0) &=& 10.2 \pm 0.8 \pm 1.1~\mathrm{MeV}, \end{eqnarray*} \begin{eqnarray*} m(\Xi_c(2965)^0) &=& 2964.88 \pm 0.26 \pm 0.14 \pm 0.14~\mathrm{MeV}, \\ \Gamma(\Xi_c(2965)^0) &=& 14.1 \pm 0.9 \pm 1.3~\mathrm{MeV}, \end{eqnarray*} where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and due to the limited knowledge of the $\Lambda_c^+$ mass.

Measurement of $|V_{cb}|$ with $B_s^0 \to D_s^{(*)-} \mu^+ \nu_{\mu}$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
The element $|V_{cb}|$ of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix is measured using semileptonic $B_s^0$ decays produced in proton-proton collision data collected with the LHCb detector at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$. Rates of $B_s^0 \to D_s^{-} \mu^+ \nu_{\mu}$ and $B_s^0 \to D_s^{*-} \mu^+ \nu_{\mu}$ decays are analyzed using hadronic form-factor parametrizations derived either by Caprini, Lellouch and Neubert (CLN) or by Boyd, Grinstein and Lebed (BGL).

First observation of excited $\Omega_b^-$ states / LHCb Collaboration
We report four narrow peaks in the $\Xi_b^0K^-$ mass spectrum obtained using $pp$ collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV, corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 9 fb$^{-1}$ recorded by the LHCb experiment. Referring to these states by their mass, the mass values are \begin{align*} m(\Omega_b(6316)^-) &= 6315.64\pm0.31\pm0.07\pm0.50 {\rm MeV}, \\ m(\Omega_b(6330)^-) &= 6330.30\pm0.28\pm0.07\pm0.50 {\rm MeV}, \\ m(\Omega_b(6340)^-) &= 6339.71\pm0.26\pm0.05\pm0.50 {\rm MeV}, \\ m(\Omega_b(6350)^-) &= 6349.88\pm0.35\pm0.05\pm0.50 {\rm MeV}, \end{align*}where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic and the last is due to the knowledge of the $\Xi_b^0$ mass.

Test of lepton universality with $\Lambda^{0}_{b} \to p K^- \ell^+ \ell^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
The ratio of branching fractions of the decays $\Lambda^{0}_{b}\to pK^{-}e^{+}e^{-}$ and $\Lambda^{0}_{b}\to pK^{-}\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$, $R^{-1}_{pK}$, is measured for the first time using proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 fb$^{-1}$ recorded with the LHCb experiment at center-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV. In the dilepton mass-squared range $0.1 < q^{2} < 6.0$ $GeV^{2}/c^{4}$ and the $pK^{-}$ mass range $m(pK^{-}) < 2600$ $MeV/c^{2}$, the ratio of branching fractions is measured to be $R^{-1}_{pK} = 1.17 ^{+0.18}_{-0.16} \pm 0.07$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic.

Isospin amplitudes in $\Lambda_b^0\to J/\psi \Lambda(\Sigma^0)$ and $\Xi_b^0\to J/\psi \Xi^0(\Lambda)$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
Ratios of isospin amplitudes in hadron decays are a useful probe of the interplay between weak and strong interactions, and allow searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. We present the first results on isospin amplitudes in $b$-baryon decays, using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 8.5 fb$^{-1}$, collected with the LHCb detector in $pp$ collisions at center of mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV.
