## **New Physics Fit results: Summer 2014**

The fit presented here is meant to constrain the NP contributions to |Δ F|=2 transitions by using the available experimental information on loop-mediated processes In general, NP models introduce a large number of new parameters: flavour changing couplings, short distance coefficients and matrix elements of new local operators. The specific list and the actual values of these parameters can only be determined within a given model. Nevertheless mixing processes are described by a single amplitude and can be parameterized, without loss of generality, in terms of two parameters, which quantify the difference of the complex amplitude with respect to the SM one. Thus, for instance, in the case of

mixing we define

where

includes only the SM box diagrams, while

also includes the NP contributions. In the absence of NP effects,

and

by definition. In a similar way, one can write

Concerning

, to be conservative, we add to the short-distance contribution a possible long-distance one that varies with a uniform distribution between zero and the experimental value of

.

The experimental quantities determined from the

mixings are related to their SM counterparts and the NP parameters by the following relations:

in a self-explanatory notation.

All the measured observables can be written as a function of these NP parameters and the SM ones ρ and η, and additional parameters such as masses, form factors, and decay constants.

The fit results for all the nine CKM elements are
