Experimental measurements in the B factories have led to significant progress in our understanding of flavor physics and the related CP violation. Yet, two questions remain open: First, if there is new physics at the TeV scale, why hasn’t it been manifest in flavor changing processes? Second, what is the source of the smallness and hierarchy in the standard model flavor parameters? The ATLAS and CMS experiments can provide unique ways of answering these puzzles.
