Abstract

This article summarizes the status of the global fit of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) parameters within the Standard Model performed by the CKMfitter group. Special attention is paid to the inputs for the CKM angles α and γ and the status of Bs→μμ and Bd→μμ decays. We illustrate the current situation for other unitarity triangles. We also discuss the constraints on generic ΔF=2 new physics. All results have been obtained with the CKMfitter analysis package, featuring the frequentist statistical approach and using Rfit to handle theoretical uncertainties.
