A general, and very basic introduction to QCD sum rules is presented, with emphasis on recent issues to be described at length in other papers in this issue. Collectively, these papers constitute the proceedings of the International Workshop on Determination of the Fundamental Parameters of QCD, Singapore, March 2013.

Determination of the quark coupling strength $|V_{ub}|$ using baryonic decays

The accurate determination of quark mixing parameters is essential for the understanding of the Standard Model. The LHCb collaboration now reports the coupling strength of the b quark to the u quark

QCD sum rules approach to the X, Y and Z states

In the past decade, due to the experimental observation of many charmonium-like states, there has been a revival of hadron spectroscopy. In particular, the experimental observation of charged

Determination of the quark coupling strength

In the Standard Model of particle physics, the strength of the couplings of the b quark to the u and c quarks, |Vub| and |Vcb|, are governed by the coupling of the quarks to the Higgs boson. Using

Flavour physics at LHCb

Some selected results of the LHCb experiment, running at the LHC with ppcollisions at 7 TeV and 8 TeV, are reported here, after operation with a total integratedluminosity of 3.0 fb −1 (Run 1). We

University of Birmingham First Observation of the Decay Bs0 K-+ and a Measurement of |Vub | / |Vcb |

The first observation of the suppressed semileptonic B 0 s → K − μ þ ν μ decay is reported. Using a data sample recorded in pp collisions in 2012 with the LHCb detector, corresponding to an

First Observation of the Decay B 0 s → K − μ + ν μ and a Measurement of j V ub j = j V cb j

The first observation of the suppressed semileptonic B 0 s → K − μ þ ν μ decay is reported. Using a data sample recorded in pp collisions in 2012 with the LHCb detector, corresponding to an

First Observation of the Decay B_{s}^{0}→K^{-}μ^{+}ν_{μ} and a Measurement of |V_{ub}|/|V_{cb}|.

The first observation of the suppressed semileptonic B_{s}^{0}→K^{-}μ^{+}ν_{μ} decay is reported and the ratio of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix elements |V_{ub}|/|V_{cb}| at low and high B-0→K- momentum transfer is determined.

Determining the weak couplings |Vub|/|Vcb| using semileptonic decays

This thesis will present the first observation of the decay B s →Kμνμ and the determination of |Vub|/|Vcb|. Using 2 fb−1 of data with a centre of mass energy of √ s = 8 TeV provided by the Large

QCD sum rules, a modern perspective

An introduction to the method of QCD sum rules is given for those who want to learn how to use this method. Furthermore, we discuss various applications of sum rules, from the determination of quark

LIGHT QUARK MASSES FROM QCD SUM RULES

Recent QCD sum rule determinations of the light quark masses are reviewed. In the case of the strange quark mass, possible uncertainties are discussed in the framework of finite energy sum rules.

PRECISE HEAVY QUARK MASSES

Recent theoretical and experimental improvements in the determination of charmed- and bottom-quark masses are discussed. The final results, mc(3 GeV) = 986(13) MeV and mb(mb) = 4163(16) MeV, are

PRECISE DETERMINATIONS OF THE CHARM AND BOTTOM QUARK MASSES

A finite-energy sum-rule is presented that allows for the use of combinations of both positive- and inverse-moment integration kernels. The freedom afforded from being able to employ this large class

DETERMINATION OF CHARM QUARK MASS AND αs(MZ) FROM HERA DATA

Charm production data from HERA may be used to determine the charm quark mass and jet production data from HERA may be used to determine αs(MZ). Recent results are summarised.

Up- and down-quark masses from finite-energy QCD sum rules to five loops

The up- and down-quark masses are determined from an optimized QCD finite-energy sum rule involving the correlator of axial-vector divergences, to five-loop order in perturbative QCD, and including

where the SF is the action for the quarks and SG is the action for the gauge fields. The path integral is regulated by the introduction of a space-time lattice and is computed in Euclidean space
