        A New Dynamical Picture for Production and Decay of the XYZ Mesons 30m
        I introduce an entirely new dynamical description for tetraquark mesons, based upon the competing effects of the strong attraction between quarks in a diquark, and the inability of the diquark to hadronize on its own due to being a color nonsinglet. This mechanism naturally explains, for example, the strong preference of the Z(4475) to decay to psi(2S) rather than the J/psi, the existence of a state Y(4630) that decays to Lambda_c baryon pairs, and why some but not all exotics lie near hadronic thresholds. Owing to high-energy constituent counting rules, the four-quark nature of the states produces major changes to both the high-s scaling of cross sections for producing such states and to the potency of the cusp effect of attracting resonances to pair-production thresholds.

        Study of inclusive charmonium production in e+e- annihilation and B decays at BaBar 20m
        In a e+e- B factory charmonium states can be produced through different mechanisms, as in e+e- annihilation, with double charmonium production, and in B-meson decays. Prompt production of J/psi or psi(2S) in association with a second charmonium state has been observed by both the BaBar and Belle experiments in e+e- annihilation at a center-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV. These processes provide an opportunity to study both perturbative and non-perturbative effects in QCD and to search for new charmonium states recoiling against the reconstructed J/psi or psi(2S). We present a study of such events using the full BaBar dataset. We also present measurements of absolute branching fractions of the two-body decays of B mesons B( B -> K Xcc), where Xcc is a charmonium state. In fact, in events where one B is fully reconstructed, the charmonium spectrum can be observed in an unbiased way, looking at the distribution of the K momentum in the recoiling B rest frame.

        Studies of P-wave and S-wave quarkonium production with the CMS detector 20m
        Precise measurement of S-wave quarkonium cross-sections and polarizations performed at LHC helped clarifying the experimental scenario in the field of quarkonium production. From the theoretical point of view, the most promising framework to explain such phenomena has been, for almost 20 years, NRQCD. However, the interpretation of the latest results in this framework is not straight-forward, and might require the revision of some of the assumptions that were so far made. The scientific community has come to realize that a thorough understanding must encompass a broader view, and that the study of P-wave states plays a fundamental role. The CMS collaboration has provided some of the most precise P-wave charmonium and bottomonium measurements to date. In this contribution, such results will be presented and discussed. The studies of heavy quarkonium prompt-production and polarization at the LHC are becoming crucial to solve the puzzle of hadron formation. A dedicated dimuon trigger strategy combined with the energy and luminosity provided by the LHC allowed the CMS experiment to collect large samples of quarkonium states decaying in the dimuon channel. This contribution presents the most recent CMS quarkonium production results including rapidity-integrated production cross sections extended up to ~120GeV for J/Psi and ~100GeV for psi(2S) and Y(nS) with n=1,2,3.

        Open heavy-flavour measurements in pp and p-Pb collisions with ALICE 20m
        The ALICE detector is dedicated to the study of the high energy-density QCD matter produced in heavy-ion collisions. Important probes of this matter are heavy quarks (charm and beauty), as they are produced in the early stage of the collision via initial hard scatterings. Thus measurements of their production offer important information on the early stage of the collision and the parton-medium interaction. To quantify the measurements performed in Pb-Pb collisions it is necessary that the production in pp and p-Pb collisions is studied. In pp collisions, the measurement of heavy-flavour production cross sections not only provides the reference for heavy-ion studies, but also delivers critical tests of perturbative QCD. In p-Pb collisions, initial-state effects, due to the presence of a nucleus, can be accessed. Such effects include the modification of parton densities and k_T broadening, which can result from multiple soft scatterings of partons. In addition, the existence of possible final-state effects can also be investigated. In this contribution we present the results of open heavy-flavour production measurements in pp and p-Pb collisions with ALICE. These results will include the measurement of D-meson production as a function of charged-particle multiplicity. The D mesons are reconstructed via hadronic decay channels at mid-rapidity, and the yields are measured in specific transverse-momentum intervals for various multiplicity ranges. We compare the transverse-momentum dependent evolution of the per-event yield of D mesons in different multiplicity intervals in the two collision systems to gain an understanding of the interplay between hard and soft contributions to particle production and to possibly obtain insight into the role of multiple hard partonic interaction. In addition, we present the D-meson nuclear modification factor in different multiplicity ranges, which is defined as the ratio of the D-meson yield in p-Pb and pp collisions scaled by the number of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions. Finally, the azimuthal correlation of D mesons and charged hadrons, and electrons from heavy-flavor hadron decays and charged hadrons at mid-rapidity will be discussed as a function of transverse momentum.

        J/ψ azimuthal anisotropy in Au+Au collisions at 200 GeV 20m
        In relativistic heavy-ion collisions, J/ψ can be produced via different mechanisms and the large mass of the charm quark makes it a valuable probe to the thermalization of the medium. The study of J/ψ azimuthal anisotropy can allow for the disentangling of a few interesting dynamic processes, e.g., J/ψ produced from direct pQCD processes, and J/ψ produced from recombination of charm quarks within the medium. J/ψ produced from direct pQCD processes have little azimuthal anisotropy due to the lack of collectivity and initial emitting azimuthal preference, while J/ψ produced from recombination of charm quarks are expected to inherit considerable azimuthal anisotropy if charm quarks have finite elliptic flow. In this talk, we will present J/ψ azimuthal anisotropy in Au+Au collisions at 200 GeV, from data taken by STAR during RHIC operation in year 2010 and 2011. The result will be presented as a function of centrality of Au+Au collisions and J/ψ transverse momentum.

        Charmonium Production in Asymmetric Nuclear Collisions by the PHENIX Experiment at RHIC 20m
        The measurement of quarkonia production in relativistic heavy ion collisions provides a powerful tool for studying the properties of the hot and dense matter created in these collisions. To be really useful, however, such measurements must cover a wide range of quarkonia states and colliding species. The PHENIX experiment at RHIC has successfully measured J/psi, psi-prime, chi_c and Upsilon states in p+p, d+Au and Au+Au collisions. In this talk I will present recent results from the PHENIX collaboration on charmonium production in Cu+Au and U+U collisions at 200 GeV/c.

        Open heavy-flavour measurements in Pb-Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m
        The ALICE experiment at the LHC studies Pb-Pb, p-Pb, and pp collisions to investigate the properties of the high energy-density state of strongly-interacting matter, produced in Pb-Pb collisions, the so-called quark-gluon plasma (QGP). Heavy quarks (charm and beauty) are unique probes, since they are produced in the initial hard scattering processes in the earliest phase of the collisions and interact strongly with the medium carrying trace of its properties to the final state. In particular, heavy quarks lose less energy than light quarks and gluons and exhibit a harder fragmentation. The main results from LHC-Run 1 data related to open heavy-flavour production in Pb-Pb collisions will be discussed. Open heavy flavours are measured in ALICE via the full reconstruction of the charged decay particles of D mesons at mid-rapidity or via semi-electronic and semi-muonic decays of charm and beauty hadronsat mid-rapidity and forward rapidity, respectively. The measurements of the suppression of heavy-flavour particles with respect to pp collisions (nuclear modification factor) and of the elliptic flow bring insights into the energy loss mechanisms in the medium and the possible thermalization of charm quark. The perspectives on open heavy-flavour measurements will be also presented.

        $J/\psi$ longitudinal double spin asymmetry measurement at forward rapidity in $p+p$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=510$ GeV 20m
        The polarized gluon distribution, as described by the polarized parton distribution function $\Delta g(x)$, is an important part of the spin structure of the nucleon; however the current data have very limited constraints on $\Delta g(x)$ for $x < 0.01$. During the 2013 RHIC run, the PHENIX experiment collected 146 pb$^{-1}$ of longitudinally polarized $p+p$ data at $\sqrt{s} = 510$ GeV with an average beam polarization of 52\%. At this energy, $J/\psi$ particles are predominantly produced through gluon-gluon interactions and thus the longitudinal double spin asymmetry, $A_{LL}^{J/\psi}$, is sensitive to the gluon polarization inside the proton. We measure the $J/\psi$ $A_{LL}$ in the rapidity range $1.2 < |\eta| < 2.4$ by detecting the decay $\mu^+ \mu^-$ pairs using the PHENIX muon detector arms. In this kinematic range, $A_{LL}$ is sensitive to the polarized gluon distribution at small $x \sim 2\times 10^{-3}$ as well as at moderate $x \sim 0.05$ where recent RHIC data on jet and $\pi^0$ production show possible evidence for significant gluon polarization. Compared to previous measurements in 2005 and 2006, the Run 2013 data set has roughly twenty times more statistics and will allow us to measure $A_{LL}^{J/\psi}$ with a statistical uncertainty at $\sim1$\% level. The preliminary result of this analysis will be presented.

        Resolving charm and bottom quark masses in precision Higgs boson analyses 20m
        Masses of the charm and bottom quarks are important inputs to precision calculations of Higgs boson observables, such as its partial widths and branching fractions. They constitute a major source of theory uncertainties that needs to be better understood and reduced in light of future high-precision measurements. Conventionally, Higgs boson observables are calculated in terms of $m_c$ and $m_b$, whose values are obtained by averaging over many extractions from low-energy data. This approach may ultimately be unsatisfactory, since $m_c$ and $m_b$ as single numbers hide various sources of uncertainties involved in their extractions some of which call for more careful estimations, and also hide correlations with additional inputs such as $\alpha_s$. Aiming at a more detailed understanding of the uncertainties from $m_c$ and $m_b$ in precision Higgs boson analyses, we present a calculation of Higgs boson observables in terms of low-energy observables, which reveals concrete sources of uncertainties that challenge sub-percent-level calculations of Higgs boson partial widths.

        New Physics Models Facing Lepton Flavor Violating Higgs Decays 20m
        We speculate about the possible interpretations of the recently observed excess in the h to tau mu decay. We derive a robust lower bound on the Higgs boson coupling strength to a tau and a muon, even in presence of the most general new physics affecting other Higgs properties. Then we reevaluate complementary indirect constraints coming from low energy observables as well as from theoretical considerations. In particular, the tentative signal should lead to tau to mu gamma at rates which could be observed at Belle II. In turn we show that, barring fine-tuned cancellations, the effect can only be accommodated within models with an extended scalar sector. These general conclusions are demonstrated using a number of explicit new physics models. Finally we show how, given the h to tau mu signal, the current and future searches for mu to e gamma and mu to e nuclear conversions unambiguously constrain the allowed rates for h to tau e.

        Search for stop decays to charm + LSP at CMS 20m
        The supersymmetric partner of the top quark, the stop, is among the best candidates for stabilizing the Higgs mass against large radiative corrections. In the scenario where the dark matter candidate is close in mass to the stop, the decay stop -> charm, LSP is an important search channel. This talk describes the application of a monojet search topology to hunt for this decay with the CMS detector at the LHC.

        LHCb High Level Trigger design issues for post Long Stop 1 running 20m
        The LHCb High Level Trigger uses two stages of software running on an Event Filter Farm (EFF) to select events for offline reconstruction and analysis. In LHC runs 1 & 2 the first stage (Hlt1) processes approximately 1 MHz of events accepted by a hardware trigger. In 2012, the second stage (Hlt2) wrote 5 kHz to permanent storage for later processing. Following the LHC's Long Stop 1, the machine energy will increase from 8 TeV in the center-of-mass to 13 TeV. The cross sections for beauty and charm are expected to grow proportionately. We plan to increase the Hlt2 output to 12.5 kHz, ~10 kHz for offline processing and ~ 2.5 kHz ready for immediate analysis. By increasing the absolute computing power of the EFF, buffering data for processing between machine fills, and improving algorithms, we should be able to significantly increase the efficiency for signal while improving signal-to-background ratios. Hlt1 will use a boosted decision tree to increase efficiency at that stage. We will determine calibration and alignment constants between Hlt1 and Hlt2, allowing Hlt2 to use reconstruction very close to that used offline, including RICH and calorimetric information. Post Long Stop 2 we will read out the front-end electronics at 40 MHz and move to a full software trigger while operating at higher luminosity. The implications for increasing charm yields are emphasized.

        Search for exotic charmonium at BaBar 20m
        One of the most intriguing puzzles in hadron spectroscopy are the numerous charmonium-like states observed in the last decade, including charged states that are manifestly exotic. Over the years BaBar has extensively studied these states in B meson decays, initial state radiation processes and two photon reactions. We report on recent studies on some of these states performed using the entire data sample collected by BaBar in e+e- collisions at center of mass energies near 10.58 GeV/c^2. Among these, the study of the process B -> J/psi phi K with a search for the X(4140) and X(4270) in their decays to J/psi phi, and a search for charged charmonium-like state Zc(3900)^+ in the decay Y(4260) -> J/spi pi+pi-.

        J/psi Upsilon production 20m
        The talk is devoted to theoretical description of J/psi Upsilon production at LHC. This process is interesting since at LO color-singlet approximation it is forbidden, so investigation of this reaction allows one to probe alternative mechanisms, such as color-octet production, double parton scattering, etc.

        Factorized power expansion for high pT heavy quarkonium production 20m
        From the Tevatron and the LHC data, it is clear that current models for the heavy quarkonium production are not able to explain the polarization of heavy quarkonia produced at large transverse momentum pT in p-p collision. A new approach to evaluate the heavy quarkonium production, by expanding the cross section in powers of 1/pT before the expansion in powers of alpha_s, was proposed recently. In terms of the QCD factorization, it is proved that both the leading-power (LP) and next-to-leading power (NLP) terms in 1/pT for the cross sections can be systematically factorized to all orders of alpha_s. The predictive power of this new QCD factorization formalism depends on several unknown but universal fragmentation functions (FFs) at an input scale of the order of heavy quarkonium mass m_Q. Inspired by the fact that m_Q >> Lambda_QCD, we apply the NRQCD factorization formalism to further separate the perturbative and non-perturbative interactions. With our calculations, all the input polarization-summed FFs are expressed as complicated functions with a few unknown NRQCD long-distance matrix elements (LDMEs). In addition, by general symmetry arguments, we successfully generalize the polarized NRQCD four-fermion operators to d dimensions and calculate the polarized FFs with conventional dimensional regularization. In the first application, we find those non-relativistic QCD channels, which are expected to be important in the J/psi polarization, are actually dominated by the NLP term in the pT expansion at current collider energies. Therefore the QCD factorization is very promising to solve the long standing heavy quarkonium polarization puzzle.

        Strategies for an accurate determination of the X(3872) energy from QCD lattice simulations 20m
        We develop a method to determine accurately the binding energy of the X(3872) from lattice data for the $D\bar{D}^*$ interaction. We show that, because of the small difference between the neutral and charged components of the X(3872), it is necessary to differentiate them in the energy levels of the lattice spectrum if one wishes to have a precise determination of the the binding energy of the X(3872). The analysis of the data requires the use of coupled channels. Depending on the number of levels available and the size of the box, we determine the precision needed in the lattice energies to finally obtain a desired accuracy in the binding energy.

        Probing the nature of Z_c states via the eta_c rho decay 20m
        The nature of the so-called XYZ states is a long-standing problem. It has been suggested that such particles may be described as compact four-quark states or loosely bound meson molecules. In the present work we analyze the Z_c^(') -> eta_c rho decay using both approaches. Such channel might provide useful insights on the nature of the Z_c^('), helping discriminating between the two different models.

        A case for SU(3) in D to P P decays 20m
        The question of the validity of analyzing charmed meson decays to pairs of hadrons within the SU(3) framework has been long and often debated. While there are convincing arguments that small breaking of this symmetry can accommodate for the current experimental results, the inability to compute QCD effects in these modes render it quite impossible to justify with complete authority the physical interpretations of the parameters extracted from experimental data. In our work we explore the SU(3) framework for its strengths and weaknesses and cross-examine it with arguments derived from a diagrammatic approach. We show that isospin non-universality of QCD should be considered within this framework. We also consider η - η' mixing in our attempt to build a complete analysis of these modes.

        Measuring the CP content of D decays to multibody self-conjugate final states 20m
        Quantum-correlated psi(3770) to DDbar decays collected by the CLEO-c experiment are used to perform first measurements of F+, the fractional CP-even content of the self-conjugate decays D->pi+pi−pi0 and D->K+K−pi0. Values of 0.968±0.017±0.006 and 0.731±0.058±0.021 are obtained for pi+pi−pi0 and K+K−pi0, respectively. It is demonstrated how modes of this sort can be cleanly included in measurements of the unitarity triangle angle gamma/phi3 using B+->DK+ decays. The high CP-even content of D→pi+pi−pi0, in particular, makes this a promising mode for improving the precision on gamma/phi3. Prospects with other modes are also discussed.

        A new method for measuring CPV in charm decays and the first measurement of F+ in D --> \pi^+\pi^+\pi^-\pi^- decays 20m
        A first measurement of F+, the CP-even content of the decay D--> 4pi using quantum correlated psi(3770) to DDbar decays collected by the CLEO-c experiment is presented. A high value is obtained, which makes the decay mode particularly suitable for both measurements of the CKM angle \gamma and charm CP violation in a model independent way. This novel approach to studying indirect CP violation in charm decays is based on the time-dependent inclusive analysis of multibody self-conjugate states. These final states can be used to determine the indirect $CP$-violating observable $A_\Gamma$ and the mixing observable $y_{CP}$, provided that $F_+$, is known. This approach can yield significantly improved sensitivity compared with the conventional method that relies on decays to $CP$ eigenstates. Extensions including direct CP violation are also presented.

        Precision measurements of the D -> pi e+ nu form factor could shed new light on the persistent difference between inclusive and exclusive measurements of Vub. We report the measurement of the partial branching fraction of  D -> pi e+ nu in bins of the four-momentum transfer squared of the D to pi system using 347.2 /fb of integrated luminosity of the BaBar data. The D -> pi form factor is extracted with fits to the unfolded partial branching fraction using pole or generalized expansions and the value at zero recoil is determined. These form factors are compared to the current world average, the available lattice predictions, and interpreted with the expectation of a single dominant pole term. The measured form factor is then combined with previous BaBar B -> pi l nu information to determine a value of Vub.

        The asymmetry in the forward region production cross section of D± is calculated using the heavy quark recombination mechanism for pp collisions at 7 TeV. By suitable choices of four nonperturbative parameters, our calculated results can reproduce those obtained at LHCb. We find A p ∼ −1% when integrated over 2.0 GeV < p T < 18 GeV and 2.2 < η < 4.75, which agrees with A p = −0.96 ± 0.26 ± 0.18% as measured by LHCb. Furthermore, the calculated distributions in η and p T agree reasonably well with those obtained at LHCb. Predictions on production asymmetry of heavy baryons are also made in the same formalism.

Using a large statistics $\Upsilon(4S)$ data sample corresponding to 772 million $B$ meson pairs accumulated by the Belle detector at the KEKB $e^+e^-$ collider, precise measurements of inclusive $B \to \chi_{c1}$ and $\chi_{c2}$ branching fractions are carried out.

        Charm contributions in B to K* l+l- 20m
        The rare semileptonic Bd → K∗l+i− decay has been extensively studied within the Standard Model and beyond. Significant efforts from Lattice QCD groups have reduced theoretical errors in the form-factors to tractable limits in the high q^2 regime while arguments from LCSR can be used for the same in the low q^2 regime. However, hadronic contributions coming primarily from charm loops still plague the predictions of many observables in this channel. While the intricacies of QCD prevent exact estimation of these hadronic contributions, experimental analysis will be reaching a point where these can be determined from data. We present in this work a Bayesian analysis of the decay in the full range of q2, in which we extract these charm loop hadronic contributions from available data. We also make well-motivated arguments about the size of the hadronic contributions and ultimately show the compatibility of the currently available experimental data with the Standard Model predictions.

        The status of CP violations in charm sector is still unsettled. According to SM, the predicted asymmetries are small, but often affected by large uncertainties due to long-distance effects. However, it is possible to build observables which SM predicts to be CP conserving, so that any measured asymmetry is, with no doubts, a sign of New Physics.   We present recent results on charm CP violation at Belle and BaBar. We show the measurement of CP asymmetries in D+ -> K+ K- pi+, D+ -> KS K+, Ds+ -> KS K+, Ds+ -> KS pi+ at BABAR.

        Leptonic and semileptonic charm decays at Belle 30m
        We describe recent developments in experimental studies of D and Ds meson leptonic decays at the BaBar, Belle, BESIII and CLEO-c detectors and their implications for the determination of charm meson decay constants as well as searches for charged Higgs. Also discussed are semileptonic decays of D and Ds mesons and their relevance to hadronic form factors.

        D Leptonic and semi-leptonic decays from BESIII 30m
        The BESIII experiment has taken 2.92/fb of data at sqrt(s) = 3.773 GeV which contains the largest sample of e+e- -> psi(3770) -> DDbar in the world to date. We report the result of our branching fraction measurement of D+ -> mu+ nu based on this sample from which we extract its weak decay constant, f_D+, with the|Vcd| determined from a global Standard Model fit as an input. We also obtain |Vcd| from the measured branching fraction together with a Lattice QCD prediction for f_D+. In addition, we present measurements of D0 -> (K-/pi-) e+ nu, D+ -> KL e+v, and D+ to (omega/phi/K pi) e+ nu decays. Based on analysis of D0 -> (K-/pi-) e+ nu and D+ -> K_L e+ nu, we extract different parameterizations of the form factors together with the CKM matrix elements |Vcs(d)|. These will give a precision test on the LQCD calculation on these form factors and the unitarity of the CKM matrix. Based on analysis of D+ -> K- pi+ e+ nu, we perform a partial wave analysis and in return, we determine the S-wave contribution and its phase, the helicity basis form factors of D+ ->K*(892) e nu based on the SPD model, and we also measure them in a model-independent way. We also report searches for some rare semi-leptonic decays.
