Abstract
The LHCb experiment is able to measure the production properties of heavy hadrons in a region that is complementary with respect to those of the ATLAS and CMS experiments. These measurements provide useful information to better understand quantum chromodynamics and to discriminate between theoretical models.
The determination of the production cross-sections of $\Upsilon(1S)$, $\Upsilon(2S)$, $\Upsilon(3S)$ in $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV is presented, together with the measurement of the production cross-section of $B^+$ mesons in $pp$ collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 13 TeV. Finally, the measurement of the $D^{+}_s$ production asymmetry at $\sqrt{s}=7$ and $8$ TeV is also reported.
