We present a new lattice QCD analysis of heavy-quark pseudoscalar-pseudoscalar correlators, using gluon configurations from the MILC Collaboration that include vacuum polarization from u , d , s , and c quarks ( n f = 4 ). We extract new values for the QCD coupling and for the c quark’s MS ¯ mass: α MS ¯ ( M Z , n f = 5 ) = 0.11822 ( 74 ) and m c ( 3 GeV , n f = 4 ) = 0.9851 ( 63 ) GeV . These agree well with our earlier simulations using n f = 3 sea quarks, vindicating the perturbative…
