The $B$ and $B_s$ Meson Decay Constants from Lattice QCD
We present a new determination of the B and Bs meson decay constants using nonrelativistic quantum chromodynamics (NRQCD) b-quarks, highly improved staggered quark (HISQ) light and strange valenceExpand

A Biased Random Walk Model for the Trajectories of Swimming Micro-organisms
The motion of swimming micro-organisms that have a preferred direction of travel, such as single-celled algae moving upwards (gravitaxis) or towards a light source (phototaxis), is modelled as theExpand

B → Dl ν form factors at nonzero recoil and extraction of j Vcb j
We present a lattice QCD calculation of the B → Dlν semileptonic decay form factors fþðqÞ and f0ðqÞ for the entire physical q range. Nonrelativistic QCD bottom quarks and highly improved staggeredExpand

Bs! K' form factors from lattice QCD
We report the first lattice QCD calculation of the form factors for the standard model tree-level decay B s → K l ν . In combination with future measurement, this calculation will provide anExpand

Bs → Ds l ν Form Factors and the Fragmentation Fraction Ratio fs / fd
We present a lattice quantum chromodynamics determination of the scalar and vector form factors for the Bs → Ds l ν decay over the full physical range of momentum transfer. In conjunction with futureExpand

Rare decayB→Kℓ+ℓ−form factors from lattice QCD
We calculate, for the first time using unquenched lattice QCD, form factors for the rare decay B→Kl+l− in and beyond the Standard Model. Our lattice QCD calculation utilizes a nonrelativistic QCDExpand

Standard model predictions for B→Kℓ(+)ℓ- with form factors from lattice QCD.
We calculate, for the first time using unquenched lattice QCD form factors, the standard model differential branching fractions dB/dq2(B→Kℓ(+)ℓ(-)) for ℓ=e, μ, τ and compare with experimentalExpand

Prediction of the B{c}{*} mass in full lattice QCD.
By using the highly improved staggered quark formalism to handle charm, strange, and light valence quarks in full lattice QCD, and NRQCD to handle bottom valence quarks, we are able to determineExpand
