Status of indirect searches for New Physics with heavy flavour decays after the initial LHC run

Review
Part of the following topical collections:
  1. Focus Point on Taking stock: measurements, searches and discoveries at the LHC

Abstract.

We present a status report on the indirect searches for New Physics performed by means of heavy flavour decays. Particular attention is devoted to the recent experimental results in B and charm physics obtained by the LHC experiments. The implications of these results for physics beyond the Standard Model are discussed both in general terms and by means of a few specific examples.
