Event details

Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics represents the theoretical formulation of QCD that allows for the computation of low-energy hadronic properties in the domain where the perturbative methods fail. A chirally symmetric discretisation of the fermion action, known as Domain Wall Fermions (DWF), has played a crucial role in the broad light flavour phenomenology program of the RBC/UKQCD collaborations. In order to apply the same fermion discretisation in the light, as well as the heavy quark sector, a number of properties of the heavy DWF needed to be understood. In this talk I will present the systematic studies of the applicability of Domain Wall discretisation to heavy quark physics. The outcomes of these studies allow us to proceed using heavy DWF in dynamical simulations of lattice QCD.

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
