  • In this paper, it is pointed out that given the us element of the CKM quark mixing matrix, the other elements can be successfully explained or predicted by using the five relations derived in a composite model of quarks (and leptons).
  • The minimal Standard Model with three generations of fermions and a single Higgs doublet is the simplest theoretical framework that is consistemt with all experimental measurements of electroweak phenomena. The predictions of the minimal Standard Model can all be given in terms of eighteen independent parameters. Of these, ten are related to the quark sector of the theory: six quark masses and four mixing parameters. The latter ones parametrize the Cabibbo-Kobsysdhi-Maskawa (CKM) mixing matrix. In this work, the authors describe their current knowledge of the CKM matrix.
  • We briefly review existing proposals for the renormalization of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix and study the numerical effects of several of them on the W-boson hadronic partial decay widths. We then use these results to evaluate the relative shifts on the CKM parameters |V{sub ij}|{sup 2} induced by the quark-mixing renormalization effects, as well as their scheme dependence. We also discuss the implications of this analysis for the most precise unitarity test of the CKM matrix.

  • The B{anti B} Mixing Sub-group reviewed previous and proposed B{anti B} mixing measurements. A brief review of the motivation for such measurements taken from extensive literature on this subject is presented. Then, past and proposed efforts are presented in tables augmented by references to the original papers.
