Particle Physics Seminar

Date: Wednesday 26th October 2005

Title: Hadron Physics from Lattice QCD

Speaker: Prof Christine Davies (University of Glasgow)


I will describe recent progress in lattice QCD that has allowed an accurate calculation of the hadron spectrum for the first time and the prediction of the mass of the B_c meson. I will give the current status of calculations of decay constants and form factors of B and D mesons and the prospects for improving these in the near future.

This Particle Physics Seminar will take place in Seminar Room 1 (room 103), Physics West, at 1315. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served at 1300.
