Physics Colloquium 3 February 2016 delivered by Professor Val Gibson, Cambridge

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has just completed another very successful year of data-taking, exceeding many of its design parameters, and collecting a huge amount of data. The LHCb experiment at the LHC is designed to search for new phenomena in heavy quark (beauty and charm) systems, which could ultimately explain why we live in a universe made of matter and not antimatter, as well as giving insight into the origin of dark matter in the Universe. This colloquium will focus on the latest results from the LHCb experiment: the precision measurements that benchmark the Standard Model; the results that tantalisingly deviate from the Standard Model; and the discovery of many new particles, including pentaquarks.
