We use lattice QCD to calculate the form factors f+(q2) and f0(q2) for the semileptonic decay Bs→Kℓν. Our calculation uses six MILC asqtad 2+1 flavor gauge-field ensembles with three lattice spacings. At the smallest and largest lattice spacing the …

In the near-future noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) era of quantum computing technology, applications of quantum computing will be limited to calculations of very modest scales in terms of the number of qubits used. The need to represent …

We calculate the leptonic decay constants of heavy-light pseudoscalar mesons with charm and bottom quarks in lattice quantum chromodynamics on four-flavor QCD gauge-field configurations with dynamical u, d, s, and c quarks. We analyze over twenty …

We calculate the up-, down-, strange-, charm-, and bottom-quark masses using the MILC highly improved staggered-quark ensembles with four flavors of dynamical quarks. We use ensembles at six lattice spacings ranging from a≈0.15 to 0.03 fm and with …

We calculate in three-flavor lattice QCD the short-distance hadronic matrix elements of all five ΔC=2 four-fermion operators that contribute to neutral D-meson mixing both in and beyond the Standard Model. We use the MILC Collaboration’s Nf=2+1 …

We calculate—for the first time in three-flavor lattice QCD—the hadronic matrix elements of all five local operators that contribute to neutral B0- and Bs-meson mixing in and beyond the Standard Model. We present a complete error budget for each …

We present results for the spectrum of a strongly interacting SU(3) gauge theory with Nf=8 light fermions in the fundamental representation. Carrying out nonperturbative lattice calculations at the lightest masses and largest volumes considered to …

We compute the form factors for the B→Kl+l- semileptonic decay process in lattice QCD using gauge-field ensembles with 2+1 flavors of sea quark, generated by the MILC Collaboration. The ensembles span lattice spacings from 0.12 to 0.045 fm and have …

We calculate the spin-independent scattering cross section for direct detection that results from the electromagnetic polarizability of a composite scalar “stealth baryon” dark matter candidate, arising from a dark SU(4) confining gauge …
