Constraints in the (ρbar,ηbar) plane. The Vub constraint has been splitted in the two contributions: Vub from inclusive and exclusive semileptonic decays (plain dark green) and Vub from B^{+}→τ^{+} ν (hashed green). The red hashed region of the global combination corresponds to 68% CL.

Constraints in the (ρ_{s}bar,η_{s}bar) plane. The red hashed region of the global combination corresponds to 68% CL. The (almost horizontal) thin blue lines correspond to the 68% and 95% CL constraints on β_{s} from the combined results on B_{s}>J/Ψφ from CDF [arXiv:1112.1726] and LHCb [arXiv:1112.3183].

The global CKM fit in the (V_{ud},V_{us}) plane:
No update  See Summer 11 results (here). 
Constraint from the B^{+}→τ^{+} ν branching ratio:
There is a discrepancy in the CKM global fit between the world averages for sin2β and BR(B→τν).  
There is a specific correlation between the two quantities in the global fit that is a bit at odds with the direct experimental determination. This is best viewed in the (sin2β,BR(B→τν)) plane, regarding the prediction from the global fit without using these measurements. The cross corresponds to the experimental value with 1 sigma errors.  
The shape of the correlation can be understood by considering the ratio BR(B→τν)/Δm_{d}, where the decay constant f_{Bd} cancels, leaving limited theoretical uncertainties (the ratio depends only on the bag parameter B_{Bd}). Thus from the observables BR(B→τν) and Δm_{d} one gets an interesting constraint in the (ρbar,ηbar) plane, which does not match perfectly with the global fit output. 


To have a closer look, one can write the full formula for the ratio
where one explicitly sees that the correlation between BR(B→τν) and the angle β is controlled by the values of B_{Bd}, and the angles α and γ. This can be checked explicitly by comparing the above analytical formula with the colored region in the (sin2β,BR(B→τν)) plane. In other words the discrepancy is not driven by the value of semileptonic V_{ub}, nor by the decay constant f_{Bd}.  
To quantify the discrepancy one can compare the indirect fit prediction for BR(B→τν) with the measurement. The deviation here is 2.8 sigmas.  
A simpler test is the comparison of the prediction of B_{Bd} from the above
analytical formula (having only BR(B→τν), Δm_{d}, α, β, γ and
V_{ud} as inputs, that is an almost completely theoryfree determination of
B_{Bd}) with the current lattice determination
B_{Bd} = 1.262 ^{+0.083}_{0.081}.
For this test the deviation is 2.9 sigmas, dominated by the error on BR(B→τν), α, γ and B_{Bd}.

Constraints on the angle α/ϕ_{2} from charmless B decays
We have included LHCb results for C(ππ) and S(ππ) presented at Moriond 2012 as well as Belle results for BR(ππ) and BR(π^{+}π^{0}) presented at EPS2011. One observes a slight degradation of the accuracy for α due to the decrease of BR(π^{+}π^{0}) that weakens the degeneracy of mirror solutions, yielding: α[combined]= 88.7^{+4.6}_{4.2}°. 
Constraint on α/ϕ_{2} from B→ππ compared to the prediction from the global CKM fit (not including the αrelated measurements) α[fit]= 95.9^{+2.2}_{5.6}°.

Illustration of the correlation between the determination of γ/ϕ_{3} and the ratio of interfering amplitudes r_{B} of the decay B → DK from world average D(*)K(*) decays (GLW+ADS) and Dalitz analyses (GGSZ).  
Constraint on the ratio of interfering amplitudes r_{B} of the decay B → DK from world average D(*)K(*) decays (GLW+ADS) and Dalitz analyses (GGSZ): r_{B}(DK) = 0.099 ± 0.008.

Constraint on the strong phase between the interfering amplitudes of the decay B → DK^{*}: δ_{B}(DK^{*}) = 117^{+30}_{42}°. 
Constraints on sin(2β+γ) from the measurement of timedependent CP asymmetries in D(*) π(ρ); Winter 11 HFAG average. The extraction of the UTangle combination relies on SU(3) symmetry for the estimates of the suppressedtoleading amplitude ratios. We use for r^{(*)} the values of the branching fractions for D(*) π(ρ) and D_{s}(*) π(ρ) as averaged by the PDG group (2011 online update), including Babar 2008 and Belle 2010 results. We use our own average for the ratio f_{Ds}/f_{D} equal to 1.185 ± 0.005 ± 0.010. According to arXiv:1109.0460 and in lack of unquenched N_{f}=2+1 computations, we use a conservative value of 1.1 ± 1.1 for the ratios of the decay constants for D_{(s)}*^{+}π^{}. We treat the uncertainty on SU(3)flavour breaking through the method described in Max Baak's thesis (here) with a 10.5% statistic and a 5% systematic uncertainties. 


Translation of this result into γ (using sin(2β) as additional input and choosing among the four solutions to the SM one). γ[GLW+ADS+GGSZ+sin(2β+γ)] = (68.0 ± 11.0)°.
