                        Understanding flavor at the LHC

 Huge progress in flavour physics has been achieved by the two B-factories and
 the Tevatron experiments. This progress has, however, deepened the new physics
  flavour puzzle: If there is new physics at the TeV scale, why aren*t flavour
 changing neutral current processes enhanced by orders of magnitude compared to
 the standard model predictions? The forthcoming ATLAS and CMS experiments can
potentially solve this puzzle. Perhaps even more surprisingly, these experiments
  can potentially lead to progress in understanding the standard model flavour
puzzle: Why is there smallness and hierarchy in the flavour parameters? Thus, a
      rich and informative flavour program is awaiting us not only in the
    flavour-dedicated LHCb experiment, but also in the high-pT ATLAS and CMS
