Precise theoretical predictions derived from the Standard Model are a key ingredient in searches for new physics in the flavor sector. The large mass and long lifetime of the bquark make processes involving b quarks of particular interest. We use lattice simulations to perform nonperturbative QCD calculations for semileptonic B(s) decays. We present results from our determinations of Bs ? Dsl? and Bs ? Kl? semileptonic form factors and provide an outlook for our B ? pl? calculation. In addition we discuss the determination of R-ratios testing lepton-flavor universality and suggest use of an improved ratio. Our calculations are based on the set of 2+1 flavor domain wall Iwasaki gauge field configurations generated by the RBC-UKQCD collaboration featuring three lattice spacings of 1/a = 1.78, 2.38, and 2.79 GeV. Heavy b-quarks are simulated using the relativistic heavy quark action.

Funding Information:
We thank our RBC and UKQCD collaborators for helpful discussions and suggestions. Computations used resources provided by the USQCD Collaboration, funded by the Office of Science of the US Department of Energy and by the ARCHER UK National Supercomputing Service, as well as computers at Columbia University and Brookhaven National Laboratory. We used gauge field configurations generated on the DiRAC Blue Gene Q system at the University of Edinburgh, part of the DiRAC Facility, funded by BIS National E-infrastructure grant ST/K000411/1 and STFC grants ST/H008845/1, ST/K005804/1 and ST/K005790/1. This project has received funding from Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant 659322 (EU Horizon 2020), STFC grants ST/P000711/1 and
