Abstract

We present an overview of four recent measurements of charm decays performed at the LHCb experiment. These include the first observation of the non-zero mass difference between neutral charm-meson eigenstates, the most precise measurements of ∆YKK and ∆Yππ, and timeintegrated ACP of eight two-body charm decays. The precision of the measurements is mainly limited by statistical uncertainty, so further improvement is expected with the upcoming LHC Run 3.
