On Sunday 11th of March, NA62 collaboration presented in Moriond the first results of the K+→π+νν analysis. This decay channel has a branching ratio in the SM of (8.4±1.0)×10-11 with solid theoretical predictions dominated by short distance contributions and with the hadronic uncertainties well under control. This channel is a golden one in the search of… Continue reading NA62 presents first results on Very Rare Kaon Decays
