Observation of five new narrow $\Omega_c^0$ states decaying to $\Xi^+_c K^-$ / LHCb Collaboration
The $\Xi^+_c K^-$ mass spectrum is studied with a sample of $pp$ collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.3 fb$^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment. The $\Xi^+_c$ is reconstructed in the decay mode $pK^- \pi^+$. [...]

Measurement of the $B^0_s\to\mu^+\mu^-$ branching fraction and effective lifetime and search for $B^0\to\mu^+\mu^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
A search for the rare decays $B^0_s\to\mu^+\mu^-$ and $B^0\to\mu^+\mu^-$ is performed at the LHCb experiment using data collected in $pp$ collisions corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 4.4 fb$^{-1}$. An excess of $B^0_s\to\mu^+\mu^-$ decays is observed with a significance of 7.8 standard deviations, representing the first observation of this decay in a single experiment. [...]

Observation of the decay $\Lambda^0_b \to p K^- \mu^+ \mu^-$ and a search for $C\!P$ violation / LHCb Collaboration
A search for CP violation in the decay Λ$_{b}^{0}$  → pK$^{−}$ μ$^{+}$ μ$^{−}$ is presented. This decay is mediated by flavour-changing neutral-current transitions in the Standard Model and is potentially sensitive to new sources of CP violation. [...]

Neutron capture cross section measurement of $^{238}$U at the n_TOF CERN facility in the energy region from 1 eV to 700 keV / n_TOF Collaboration
The aim of this work is to provide a precise and accurate measurement of the $^{238}$U(n,$\gamma$) reaction cross section in the energy region from 1 eV to 700 keV. This reaction is of fundamental importance for the design calculations of nuclear reactors, governing the behaviour of the reactor core. [...]

Measurement of the $C\!P$ violation parameter $A_\Gamma$ in $D^0 \to K^+K^-$ and $D^0 \to \pi^+\pi^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
Asymmetries in the time-dependent rates of $D^0 \to K^+K^-$ and $D^0 \to \pi^+\pi^-$ decays are measured in a $pp$ collision data sample collected with the LHCb detector during LHC Run 1, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$. The asymmetries in effective decay widths between $D^0$ and $\overline{D}^0$ decays, sensitive to indirect $CP$ violation, are measured to be $A_\Gamma(K^+ K^-) = (-0.30 \pm 0.32 \pm 0.10)\times 10^{-3}$ and $A_\Gamma(\pi^+\pi^-) = (0.46 \pm 0.58 \pm 0.12)\times 10^{-3}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic.
