Title: New Methods for B Decay Constants and Form Factors from Lattice NRQCD

Abstract

We determine the normalisation of scalar and pseudo scalar current operators made from NonRelativistic QCD (NRQCD) b quarks and Highly Improved Staggered (HISQ) light quarks through O(αs∧QCD/mb). We use matrix elements of these operators to extract B meson decay constants and form factors and compare to those obtained using the standard vector and axial vector operators. We work on MILC second-generation 2+1+1 gluon field configurations, including those with physical light quarks in the sea. This provides a test of systematic uncertainties in these calculations and we find agreement between the results to the 2% level of uncertainty previously quoted.
