From actions to answers: flavour physics from lattice gauge theory, Peter Boyle (BNL)




Lattice gauge theory is a numerical approach to the Feynman path integral, and is the only systematically improvable approach to make theoretical predictions of hadronic properties from the underlying theory of quarks and gluons. I will present theoretical numerical calculations of hadronic properties that represent theoretical input to flavour physics, quark flavour mixing, and  standard model CP violation in the Kaon, D and B mesons. These lead to constraints on CKM flavour mixing constants of the standard model, and searches for new physics.
