In this talk, I will discuss these observations with a particular emphasis on the observable$R_{D^*}$, the ratio of the branching fraction of$\bar{B} \to D^* \tau \bar{
u}_\tau$to that of$\bar{B}
\to D^* \ell \bar{
u}_\ell (\ell = \mu, e )\$, which shows a 3.3 sigma deviation
from the Standard Model prediction. I will present an effective field theory
analysis of these potential new physics signals and discuss possible ways to distinguish the various operators.
