Dalitz Plot analysis of the $D^+ \to K^- K^+ K^+$ decay / LHCb Collaboration
The resonant structure of the doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decay $D^+\to K^-K^+K^+$ is studied for the first time. The measurement is based on a sample of $pp$-collision data, collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV with the LHCb detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2 fb$^-1$. [...]

Measurement of $B^+$, $B^0$ and $\Lambda_b^0$ production in $p\mkern 1mu\mathrm{Pb}$ collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 8.16 \ \rm TeV$ / LHCb Collaboration
The production of $B^+$, $B^0$ and $\Lambda_b^0$ hadrons is studied in proton-lead collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of $\sqrt{s_\mathrm{NN}}=8.16\,{\rm TeV}$ recorded with the LHCb detector at the LHC. The measurement uses a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $12.2\pm0.3\ \mathrm{nb}^{-1}$ for the case where the proton beam is projected into the LHCb detector (corresponding to measuring hadron production at positive rapidity) and $18.6\pm0.5\ \mathrm{nb}^{-1}$ for the lead beam projected into the LHCb detector (corresponding to measuring hadron production at negative rapidity).

Measurement of the ratio of branching fractions of the decays $\Lambda_b^0 \!\to \psi(2S) \Lambda$ and $\Lambda_b^0 \!\to J\!/\!\psi \Lambda$ / LHCb Collaboration
Using $pp$ collisions corresponding to 3$\,\text{fb}^{-1}$ integrated luminosity, recorded by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8$\,\text{TeV}$, the ratio of branching fractions \begin{align*} \mathcal{B}(\Lambda^0_b\!\to\psi(2S) \Lambda )/\mathcal{B}(\Lambda^0_b\!\to J/\psi \Lambda)= 0.513 \pm 0.023\, (\text{stat}) \pm 0.016 \, (\text{syst}) \pm 0.011\, (\mathcal{B}) \end{align*} is determined. The first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic and the third is due to the external branching fractions used..

Measurement of the mass and production rate of $\Xi_b^-$ baryons / LHCb Collaboration
The first measurement of the production rate of $\Xi_b^-$ baryons in $pp$ collisions relative to that of $\Lambda_b^0$ baryons is reported, using data samples collected by the LHCb experiment, and corresponding to integrated luminosities of 1, 2 and 1.6~fb$^{-1}$ at $\sqrt{s}=7,~8$ and 13~TeV, respectively. In the kinematic region $2 < \eta < 6$ and $p_{\rm T}<20$~GeV/\it{c}, we measure \begin{align*} \frac{f_{\Xi_b^-}}{f_{\Lambda_b^0}}\frac{\mathcal B(\Xi_b^-\to J/\psi\Xi^-)}{\mathcal B(\Lambda_b^0\to J/\psi\Lambda)} &= (10.8\pm0.9\pm0.8)\times10^{-2}~~[\sqrt{s}=7,8~TeV],\\ \frac{f_{\Xi_b^-}}{f_{\Lambda_b^0}}\frac{\mathcal B(\Xi_b^-\to J/\psi\Xi^-)}{\mathcal B(\Lambda_b^0\to J/\psi\Lambda)} &= (13.1\pm1.1\pm1.0)\times10^{-2}~~[\sqrt{s}=13~TeV], \end{align*} where $f_{\Xi_b^-}$ and $f_{\Lambda_b^0}$ are the fragmentation fractions of $b$ quarks into $\Xi_b^-$ and $\Lambda_b^0$ baryons, respectively, $\mathcal B$ represents branching fractions, and the uncertainties are due to statistical and experimental systematic sources.

Search for $CP$ violation through an amplitude analysis of $D^0\rightarrow K^+ K^- \pi^+ \pi^-$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
A search for $CP$ violation in the Cabibbo-suppressed $D^0 \rightarrow K^+ K^- \pi^+ \pi^-$ decay mode is performed using an amplitude analysis. The measurement uses a sample of $pp$ collisions recorded by the LHCb experiment during 2011 and 2012, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{-1}$. [...]

First measurement of charm production in fixed-target configuration at the LHC / LHCb Collaboration
The first measurement of heavy-flavour production by the LHCb experiment in its fixed-target mode is presented. The production of $J/\psi$ and $D^0$ mesons is studied with beams of protons of different energies colliding with gaseous targets of helium and argon with nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energies of $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 86.6 $ and $ 110.4$ ${\rm GeV}$, respectively.

The production of $\Upsilon (nS)$ mesons ($n=1,2,3$) in $p$Pb and Pb$p$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=8.16$ TeV is measured by the LHCb experiment, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 31.8 nb$^{-1}$.

Measurement of the charm-mixing parameter $y_{CP}$ / LHCb Collaboration
A measurement of the charm-mixing parameter $y_{CP}$ using $D^0 \to K^+ K^-$, $D^0 \to \pi^+ \pi^-$, and $D^0 \to K^- \pi^+$ decays is reported. The $D^0$ mesons are required to originate from semimuonic decays of $B^-$ and $\overline{B}^0$ mesons. [...]

Observation of two resonances in the $\Lambda_b^0 \pi^\pm$ systems and precise measurement of $\Sigma_b^\pm$ and $\Sigma_b^{*\pm}$ properties / LHCb Collaboration
The first observation of two structures consistent with resonances in the final states $\Lambda_b^0 \pi^-$ and $\Lambda_b^0 \pi^+$ is reported using samples of $pp$ collision data collected by the LHCb experiment at $\sqrt{s} = 7$ and $8$ TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 $\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$. The ground states $\Sigma_b^\pm$ and $\Sigma_b^{*\pm}$ are also confirmed and their masses and widths are precisely measured..
