 Rare Higgs decays, Higgs BSM and HH in ATLAS and CMS / Gennai, Simone (INFN, Milan Bicocca) /ATLAS, CMS and Higgs collaborations The Higgs boson discovery signed a fundamental step in our comprehension of the Standard Model of elementary particles. Since then the ATLAS and CMS collaborations moved their focus from a discovery strategy to the study of the properties of the new boson also looking for possible hints of new physics.

 Study of $B_c^+$ meson decays to charmonia plus multihadron final states Four decay modes of the $B_c^+$ meson into a $J/\psi$~meson and multiple charged kaons or pions are studied using proton-proton collision data, collected with the LHCb detector at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8, and 13 TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $9$fb$^{-1}$.The decay $B_c^+\to J/\psi K^+ K^- \pi^+ \pi^+ \pi^-$ is observed for the first time, and evidence for the $B_c^+\to J/\psi 4\pi^+ 3\pi^-$ decay is found.

 Model-independent measurement of charm mixing parameters in $\bar{B} \rightarrow D^0 ( \rightarrow K_S^0 \pi^+ \pi^-) \mu^- \bar{\nu}_\mu X$ A measurement of charm mixing and $CP$-violating parameters is reported, using $\bar{B} \rightarrow D^0 ( \rightarrow K_S^0 \pi^+ \pi^-) \mu^-\bar{\nu}_\mu X$ decays reconstructed in proton-proton collisions collected by the LHCb experiment during the years 2016 to 2018, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb$^{-1}$.
