Title: Extracting F{sub {pi}} from small lattices: Unquenched results

Abstract

We calculate the response of the microscopic Dirac spectrum to an imaginary isospin chemical potential for QCD with two dynamical flavors in the chiral limit. This extends our previous calculation from the quenched to the unquenched theory. The resulting spectral correlation function in the {epsilon}-regime provides here, too, a new and efficient way to measure F{sub {pi}} on the lattice. We test the method in a hybrid Monte Carlo simulation of the theory with two staggered quarks.

  • We discuss some aspects of the search for CP asymmetry in the three body B decays, revealed through the interference among neighbor resonances in the Dalitz plot. We propose a competitive method to extract the CKM {gamma} angle combining Dalitz plot amplitude analysis of B{sup {+-}}{yields}K{sup {+-}}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} and untagged B{sup 0}, B{sup 0}{yields}K{sub s}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}. The method also obtains the ratio and phase difference between the tree and penguin contributions from B{sup 0} and B{sup 0}{yields}K*{sup {+-}}{pi}{sup {+-}} decays and the CP asymmetry between B{sup 0} and B{sup 0}. From Monte Carlo studies of 100 K eventsmore » for the neutral mesons, we show the possibility of measuring {gamma}.« less
  • In kaon electroproduction, p(e,e{sup {prime}}K{sup +}){rvec Y} (Y={Lambda},{Sigma}{sup 0}), hyperon polarization is an observable which arises from interference between resonant (N{sup {asterisk}},{Delta}{sup {asterisk}}) and nonresonant amplitudes involving the hyperon anomalous magnetic form factors F{sub 2}{sup {Lambda}}(q{sup 2}) and F{sub 2}{sup {Sigma}{Lambda}}(q{sup 2}). Within the framework of an effective hadronic field Lagrangian model we investigate the possibility suggested by Williams and Truman that the {Lambda}/{Sigma}{sup 0} polarized cross section ratio may be approximately proportional to the form factor ratio F{sub 2}{sup {Lambda}}/F{sub 2}{sup {Sigma}{Lambda}} and independent of the dominant N{sup {asterisk}} amplitude. We illustrate both the simplified case where the relationmore » between the form factor and polarized cross section ratio is an identity and the sensitivity due to dynamical assumptions about nearby resonances and the g{sub KN{Lambda}} coupling constant. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}« less

  • In this paper, we present results for the matrix elements of the additional ΔS = 2 operators that appear in models of physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM), expressed in terms of four BSM B -parameters. Combined with experimental results for ΔM K and ε K, these constrain the parameters of BSM models. We use improved staggered fermions, with valence hypercubic blocking transfromation (HYP)-smeared quarks and N f = 2 + 1 flavors of “asqtad” sea quarks. The configurations have been generated by the MILC Collaboration. The matching between lattice and continuum four-fermion operators and bilinears is done perturbatively at one-loop order. We use three lattice spacings for the continuum extrapolation: a ≈ 0.09 , 0.06 and 0.045 fm. Valence light-quark masses range down to ≈ mmore » $$phys\atop{s}$$ /13 while the light sea-quark masses range down to ≈ m$$phys\atop{s}$$ / 20 . Compared to our previous published work, we have added four additional lattice ensembles, leading to better controlled extrapolations in the lattice spacing and sea-quark masses. We report final results for two renormalization scales, μ = 2 and 3 GeV, and compare them to those obtained by other collaborations. Agreement is found for two of the four BSM B-parameters (B 2 and B$$SUSY\atop{3}$$ ). The other two (B 4 and B 5) differ significantly from those obtained using regularization independent momentum subtraction (RI-MOM) renormalization as an intermediate scheme, but are in agreement with recent preliminary results obtained by the RBC-UKQCD Collaboration using regularization independent symmetric momentum subtraction (RI-SMOM) intermediate schemes.« less
  • We use a multiply-subtracted Omnes dispersion relation for the form factor f{sup +} in B{yields}{pi} semileptonic decay, allowing the direct input of experimental and theoretical information to constrain its dependence on q{sup 2}, thereby improving the precision of the extracted value of vertical bar V{sub ub} vertical bar. Apart from these inputs we use only unitarity and analyticity properties. We obtain vertical bar V{sub ub} vertical bar=(4.02{+-}0.35)x10{sup -3}, improving the agreement with the value determined from inclusive methods, and competitive in precision with them.
