Quenched lattice calculation of semileptonic heavy-light meson form factors

- G. M. D. Divitiis, R. Petronzio, N. Tantalo
- Physics
- 4 July 2007

We calculate, in the continuum limit of quenched lattice QCD, the matrix elements of the heavy-heavy vector current between heavy-light pseudoscalar meson states. We present the form factors for… Expand

Leading isospin breaking effects on the lattice

- G. M. D. Divitiis, R. Frezzotti, +6 authors N. Tantalo
- Physics
- 20 March 2013

We present a method to evaluate on the lattice the leading isospin breaking effects due to both the small mass difference between the up and down quarks and the QED interaction. Our proposal is… Expand
