Flavour Anomalies

Plots listing a cherry-picked sets of flavour anomalies. The top plots show lepton-universality tests. The second focuses on $b\to s\mu^+\mu^-$ measurements, while the following add more quantities of interest. Pick your favourite plot depending on what you want your focus is.

Each row shows the significance (blue dot) of a measurement described in the text above. For each entry, the SM expectation (orange diamond) is set to zero, the experimental and theory uncertainties are summed in quadrature and their sum is normalised to unity. The experimental value is then shifted and scaled accordingly. If a significance is given in the relevant publication, this value is used instead of the computed significance. In the left hand side plots, the significance is signed, in the right hand side it is not.
