Description

Rare B-decays are sensitive probes of New Physics. These decays provide important information on the dynamics of extensions of the Standard Model (SM), and although most measurements so far have shown good agreement with the SM predictions, some anomalies have been observed in $b \to s$ transitions at the LHCb. In this talk I will first give an overview of rare B decays. I will then discuss the the observed anomalies in $b \to s$ transitions, including the pattern of tensions, its implications, and possibilities for New Physics.
