Observation and branching fraction measurement of the decay $\Xi_b^- \to \Lambda_b^0 \pi^-$ / LHCb Collaboration
The decay $\Xi_b^-\to\Lambda_b^0\pi^-$ is observed using a proton-proton collision data sample collected at center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the LHCb detector, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.5 fb$^{-1}$. This process is mediated by the $s\to u\bar{u}d$ quark-level transition, where the $b$ quark in the $\Xi_b^-$ baryon is a spectator in the decay. [...]

Observation of the $B_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+ \pi^0$ decay / LHCb Collaboration
The first observation of the $B_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+ \pi^0$ decay is reported with high significance using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9 fb$^{-1}$, collected with the LHCb detector at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8, and 13 TeV. The ratio of its branching fraction relative to the $B_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+$ channel is measured to be $$ \frac{ {\cal{B}}_{( B_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+\pi^0 ) }} { {\cal{B}}_{( B_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+ ) }} = 2.80 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.11 \pm 0.16 \,, $$ where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic and the third related to imprecise knowledge of the branching fractions for $B^+ \to J/\psi K^{*+}$ and $B^+ \to J/\psi K^+$ decays, which are used to determine the $\pi^0$ detection efficiency.

Measurement of the $Z$ boson production cross-section in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 5.02$ TeV / LHCb Collaboration
The first measurement of the $Z$ boson production cross-section at centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s} = 5.02\,$TeV in the forward region is reported, using $pp$ collision data collected by the LHCb experiment in year 2017, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $100 \pm 2\,\rm{pb^{-1}}$. The production cross-section is measured for final-state muons in the pseudorapidity range $2.0<\eta<4.5$ with transverse momentum $p_{\rm{T}}> 20\,\rm{GeV/}\it{c}$. [...]

Measurement of the branching fraction of $B^{0} \rightarrow J/\psi \pi^{0}$ decays / LHCb Collaboration
The ratio of branching fractions between $B^{0} \rightarrow J/\psi \pi^{0}$ and $B^{+} \rightarrow J/\psi K^{*+}$ decays is measured with proton-proton collision data collected by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9 fb$^{-1}$. The measured value is \begin{align*} \frac{\mathcal{B}_{B^{0} \rightarrow J/\psi \pi^{0}}}{\mathcal{B}_{B^{+} \rightarrow J/\psi K^{*+}}} = (1.153 \pm 0.053 \pm 0.048 ) \times 10^{-2}, \end{align*} where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic.

Measurement of the CKM angle $\gamma$ using the $B^{\pm}\rightarrow D^*h^{\pm}$ channels / LHCb Collaboration
A measurement of the $CP$-violating observables from $B^{\pm}\rightarrow D^* K^{\pm}$ and $\mbox{$B^{\pm}\rightarrow D^* \pi^{\pm}$}$ decays is presented, where $D^* (D) $ is an admixture of $D^{*0}$ and $\bar{D}^{*0}$ ($D^0$ and $\bar{D}^0$) states and is reconstructed through the decay chains $ D^* \rightarrow D\pi^0/\gamma$ and $\mbox{$D \to K_S^0 \pi^+\pi^-/K_S^0 K^+K^-$}$. The measurement is performed by analysing the signal yield variation across the $D$ decay phase space and is independent of any amplitude model. [...]

Study of $CP$ violation in $B^0_{(s)} to D K^{*}(892)^0$ decays with $D \to K \pi ( \pi \pi)$, $ \pi \pi( \pi \pi)$, and $KK$ final states / LHCb Collaboration
A measurement of $CP$-violating observables associated with the interference of $B^0\to D^0 K^{*}(892)^0$ and $B^0\to \overline{D}^0 K^*(892)^0$ decay amplitudes is performed in the $D^0 \to K^{\mp}\pi^{\pm}(\pi^+\pi^-),$ $D^0 \to \pi^+\pi^-(\pi^+\pi^-)$, and $D^0\to K^+K^-$ final states using data collected by the LHCb experiment corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $9$~$\text{fb}^{-1}$. $CP$-violating observables related to the interference of $B^0_s\to D^0 \overline{K}^*(892)^0$ and $B_s^0\to \overline{D}^0 \overline{K}^*(892)^0$ are also measured, but no evidence for interference is found.

Prompt and nonprompt $\psi(2S)$ production in $p$Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=8.16$ TeV / LHCb Collaboration
The production of $\psi(2S)$ mesons in proton-lead collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=8.16$ TeV is studied with the LHCb detector using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 34 nb$^{-1}$. The prompt and nonprompt $\psi(2S)$ production cross-sections and the ratio of the $\psi(2S)$ to $J/\psi$ cross-section are measured as a function of the meson transverse momentum and rapidity in the nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass frame, together with forward-to-backward ratios and nuclear modification factors.

Amplitude analysis of the $B^0 \to K^{*0}\mu^+\mu^-$ decay / LHCb Collaboration
An amplitude analysis of the $B^{0}\to K^{*0}\mu^+\mu^-$ decay is presented using a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $4.7$ fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collision data collected with the LHCb experiment. For the first time, the coefficients associated to short-distance physics effects, sensitive to processes beyond the Standard Model, are extracted directly from the data through a $q^2$-unbinned amplitude analysis, where $q^2$ is the $\mu^+\mu^-$ invariant mass squared.
