Minimal Flavor violation and experimental heavy quark anomalies


Recently two experimental results show deviations from standard model (SM) above 3 sigma. The CDF measured forward-backward asymmetry 3.4 sigma away from SM expectation. The D0 Collaboration reported a 3.2sigma deviation from the SMl prediction in the like-sign dimuon asymmetry. I will discuss the two anomalies assuming a particular solution to new physics flavor problem - Minimal flavor violation.
