Lepton flavour universality (LFU) in B-decays is revisited by considering a class of semileptonic operators defined at a scale
Lambda above the electroweak scale v. The importance of quantum effects is emphasised ref.. We construct the low-energy effective Lagrangian taking into account the running effects from Lambda down to v through the one-loop renormalization group equations (RGE) in the limit of exact electroweak symmetry and QED RGEs from v down to the 1 GeV scale. The most important quantum effects turn out to be the modification of the leptonic couplings of the vector boson Z and the generation of a purely leptonic effective Lagrangian. Large LFU breaking effects in Z and tau decays as well as visible lepton flavour violating (LFV)
effects in tau decays are induced.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
