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 …

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 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 present the first unquenched lattice-QCD calculation of the hadronic form factors for the exclusive decay B¯→Dℓν¯ at nonzero recoil. We carry out numerical simulations on 14 ensembles of gauge-field configurations generated with 2+1 flavors of …

We present a lattice-QCD calculation of the B→πℓν semileptonic form factors and a new determination of the CKM matrix element textbarVubtextbar. We use the MILC asqtad (2+1)-flavor lattice configurations at four lattice spacings and light-quark …

We compute the zero-recoil form factor for the semileptonic decay $barBtextasciicircum0to Dtextasciicircum*+elltextasciicircum-barnu$ (and modes related by isospin and charge conjugation) using lattice QCD with three flavors of sea quarks. We use an …

We calculate the kaon semileptonic form factor $f_+(0)$ from lattice QCD, working, for the first time, at the physical light-quark masses. We use gauge configurations generated by the MILC collaboration with $N_f=2+1+1$ flavors of sea quarks, which …

Using staggered fermions and twisted boundary conditions, we calculate the K meson semileptonic decay vector form factor at zero momentum transfer. The HISQ formulation is used for the valence quarks, while the sea quarks are simulated with the …

We calculate form-factor ratios between the semileptonic decays barB-textgreaterDtextasciicircum+elltextasciicircum-barnu and barB_s-textgreaterD_stextasciicircum+elltextasciicircum-barnu with lattice QCD. These ratios are a key theoretical input in …
