Improvement of heavy-heavy current for calculation of $\bar{B}\rightarrow D^{(*)}\ell\bar{\nu}$ form factors using Oktay-Kronfeld heavy-quark



Primary authors



It is necessary to improve flavor-changing currents for calculating $\bar{B}\rightarrow D^{(*)}\ell\bar{\nu}$ semi-leptonic form factors using Oktay-Kronfeld (OK) heavy-quarks. The OK action reduces the heavy-quark discretization effect up to $\mathcal{O}(\lambda^3)$ in the HQET power counting. To get a full advantage of the OK action, we need to improve the currents up to the same level as well. We check the redundancy in operators added for the improvement, and address other remaining issues. We report the recent progress.
