The Standard Model is questioned: is lepton universality maintained when charming mesons decay?

The international collaboration team LHCb (CERN), that includes scientists from the G.I. Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics SB RAS and Novosibirsk State University, reported the discovery of a noticeable violation of the leptonic universality in the decay of a neutral charming meson (B meson) into an excited kaon and a lepton pair (electron-positron or muon-antimuon). This experimental result deviates from the predictions of the Standard Model, in which the probability of decay with electron-positron and muon-antimuon pairs should be practically equal
