Standard Model parameters and heavy quarks on the lattice

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


I review recent progresses in heavy quarks physics on the lattice. I focus on decay constants and form factors relevant for the extraction of CKM matrix elements from experimental data. B-\bar{B} mixing is also discussed. In the last part of the paper I describe phenomenological applications of Heavy Quark Effective Theory (HQET) on the lattice, presenting in some detail the recent non-perturbative determination of the b-quark mass including O(1/m_b) corrections.
