## $|V_{us}|$ from $K_{\ell 3}$ decay and four-flavor lattice QCD

Using highly improved staggered quark (HISQ) Nf=2+1+1 MILC ensembles with five different values of the lattice spacing, including four ensembles with physical quark masses, we perform the most precise computation to date of the K→πℓν vector form …

## $B$- and $D$-meson leptonic decay constants from four-flavor lattice QCD

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 …
