 Search for weakly decaying $b$-flavored pentaquarks / LHCb Collaboration Investigations of the existence of pentaquark states containing a single $b$ (anti)quark decaying weakly into four specific final states J/$\psi K^+\pi^- p$, J/$\psi K^- \pi^- p$, J/$\psi K^- \pi^+ p$, and $J/\psi \phi (1020) p$ are reported. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0/fb in 7 and 8 TeV pp collisions acquired with the LHCb detector.

 Search for excited $B_c^+$ states / LHCb Collaboration A search is performed in the invariant mass spectrum of the $B_c^{+}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ system for the excited $B_c^{+}$ states $B_c(2^{1}S_{0})^+$ and $B_c(2^{3}S_{1})^+$ using a data sample of $pp$ collisions collected by the LHCb experiment at the centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s} = 8 \,{\mathrm{TeV}}$, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $2 \,{\mathrm{fb^{-1}}}$. No evidence is seen for either state.

 Updated determination of $D^0$-$\overline{D}{}^0$ mixing and CP violation parameters with $D^0\to K^+\pi^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration We report measurements of charm-mixing parameters based on the decay-time-dependent ratio of $D^0\to K^+\pi^-$ to $D^0\to K^-\pi^+$ rates. The analysis uses a data sample of proton-proton collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $5.0$ fb$^{-1}$ recorded by the LHCb experiment from 2011 through 2016.

 Measurement of branching fractions of charmless four-body $\Lambda_b^0$ and $\Xi_b^0$ decays / LHCb Collaboration A search for charmless four-body decays of $\Lambda_{b}^{0}$ and $\Xi_{b}^{0}$ baryons with a proton and three charged mesons (either kaons or pions) in the final state is performed. The data sample used was recorded in 2011 and 2012 with the LHCb experiment and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$.

 First observation of $B^{+} \to D_s^{+}K^{+}K^{-}$ decays and a search for $B^{+} \to D_s^{+}\phi$ decays / LHCb Collaboration A search for $B^{+} \to D_s^{+}K^{+}K^{-}$ decays is performed using $pp$ collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.8 fb$^{-1}$, collected at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13$\,$TeV with the LHCb experiment. A significant signal is observed for the first time and the branching fraction is determined to be \begin{equation*} \mathcal{B}(B^{+} \to D_s^{+}K^{+}K^{-} ) = (7.1 \pm 0.5 \pm 0.6 \pm 0.7) \times 10^{-6}, \end{equation*} where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic and the third due to the uncertainty on the branching fraction of the normalisation mode $B^{+} \to D_s^{+} \overline{\kern -0.2em D}^{0}$.

 Measurements of the branching fractions of $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p \pi^{-} \pi^{+}$, $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-} K^{+}$, and $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p \pi^{-} K^{+}$ / LHCb Collaboration The ratios of the branching fractions of the decays $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p \pi^{-} \pi^{+}$, $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-} K^{+}$, and $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p \pi^{-} K^{+}$ with respect to the Cabibbo-favoured $\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-} \pi^{+}$ decay are measured using proton-proton collision data collected with the LHCb experiment at a 7 TeV centre-of-mass energy and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$: \begin{align*} \frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p \pi^{-} \pi^{+})}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-} \pi^{+})} & = (7.44 \pm 0.08 \pm 0.18)\,\%, \\ \frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-} K^{+})}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-} \pi^{+})} &= (1.70 \pm 0.03 \pm 0.03)\,\%, \\ \frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p \pi^{-} K^{+})}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-} \pi^{+})} & = (0.165 \pm 0.015 \pm 0.005 )\,\%, \end{align*} where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. These results are the most precise measurements of these quantities to date.

The prompt-like$A^{\prime}$search covers the mass range from near the dimuon threshold up to 70 GeV, while the long-lived$A^{\prime}$search is restricted to the low-mass region$214
