Lattice Gauge Theory and B Physics

Date: 12/10/2001

Chris Sachrajda
Professor, Southampton

The speaker will review two subjects in which lattice simulations are making, or can make in the future, a significant contribution to particle physics phenomenology. The first subject is the evaluation of quantities which enter into the determination of the vertex A of the unitarity triangle from experimental measurements of decay rates and mixing amplitudes (including the form-factors of semileptonic B-decays, and the amplitudes for mixing of neutralB and kaon mesons). In the second half of the talk, Professor Sachrajda will review the status and prospects for the evaluation of K-> pi pi amplitudes and for the subsequent study of the Delta I=1/2 rule and the evaluation of epsilon'/epsilon.
