The title of my talk is (in TEX format): $R_{D^{(*)}}$

And the abstract is :

The charged-current flavor anomalies $R_{D^{(*)}}$ are currently one of the most significant hints of new physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). In this talk, I will overview the status of these anomalies and their viable minimal solutions. I will then discuss a few related observables at the B-factories, including the two recently-measured quantities $F^L_{D^*}$ and $R_{J/\psi}$, and comment on their implications about $R_{D^{(*)}}$. Specifically, I will show that the polarization and forward-backward asymmetry of the $\tau$ lepton in these decays can be leveraged to discriminate between different solutions. Finally, I will introduce a new Leptoquark solution to these anomalies with novel signatures at LHC.
