Title: $$B_s \to K \ell\nu$$ Form Factors with 2+1 Flavors

Abstract

Using the MILC 2+1 flavor asqtad quark action ensembles, we are calculating the form factors $$f_0$$ and $$f_+$$ for the semileptonic $$B_s \rightarrow K \ell\nu$$ decay. A total of six ensembles with lattice spacing from $$\approx0.12$$ to 0.06 fm are being used. At the coarsest and finest lattice spacings, the light quark mass $$m'_l$$ is one-tenth the strange quark mass $$m'_s$$. At the intermediate lattice spacing, the ratio $$m'_l/m'_s$$ ranges from 0.05 to 0.2. The valence $b$ quark is treated using the Sheikholeslami-Wohlert Wilson-clover action with the Fermilab interpretation. The other valence quarks use the asqtad action. When combined with (future) measurements from the LHCb and Belle II experiments, these calculations will provide an alternate determination of the CKM matrix element $$|V_{ub}|$$.

  • We present new high-statistics results for nucleon form factors at pion masses of approximately 290, 350, 500, and 600 MeV using a mixed action of domain wall valence quarks on an improved staggered sea. We perform chiral fits to both vector and axial form factors and compare our results to experiment.
  • We report on the status of the Fermilab-MILC calculation of the form factor f{sub +}{sup K}{pi}(q{sup 2} = 0), needed to extract the CKM matrix element |V{sub us}| from experimental data on K semileptonic decays. The HISQ formulation is used in the simulations for the valence quarks, while the sea quarks are simulated with the asqtad action (MILC N{sub f} = 2 + 1 configurations). We discuss the general methodology of the calculation, including the use of twisted boundary conditions to get values of the momentum transfer close to zero and the different techniques applied for the correlators fits. Wemore » present initial results for lattice spacings a {approx} 0.12 fm and a {approx} 0.09 fm, and several choices of the light quark masses.« less
  • We report recent progress in the calculations of the isovector nucleon electromagnetic form factors using 2+1 flavors of domain wall fermions at pion masses of 170 MeV and 250 MeV. The lattice size is fixed at 323 ×64 with a lattice cutoff scale of 1.37(1) GeV. For the calculations with Mp = 170 MeV, we employed the All-Mode-Averaging (AMA) technique, which led to roughly a factor of 20 improvement in computational efficiency and has reduced the statistical errors in our results significantly. We were also able to do calculations at two different source-sink separations, at roughly 1.3 fm and 1.0more » fm, without much additional cost by reusing the low eigenmodes stored for the AMA calculations. We will present results for the isovector form factors and their derived quantities, including the Dirac and Pauli radii, anomalous magnetic moment and discuss the effects of possible excited-state contaminations. Connected contributions to the isoscalar Dirac and Pauli form factors will also be shown.« less
