Abstract / Description of output

The first observation of two structures consistent with resonances in the final states $\Lambda_b^0 \pi^-$ and $\Lambda_b^0 \pi^+$ is reported using samples of $pp$ collision data collected by the LHCb experiment at $\sqrt{s} = 7$ and $8$ TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 $\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$. The ground states $\Sigma_b^\pm$ and $\Sigma_b^{*\pm}$ are also confirmed and their masses and widths are precisely measured.
