Calculation of $\bar{B} \rightarrow D^\ast \ell \bar{\nu}$ form factor at zero-recoil using the Oktay-Kronfeld action


  • Mr. Sungwoo PARK

Primary authors



We present preliminary results of the calculation of $\bar{B} \rightarrow D^\ast \ell \bar{\nu}$ form factor at zero recoil. We use $N_f=2+1+1$ MILC HISQ ensembles. The charm and bottom quarks are implemented using the Oktay-Kronfeld (OK) action. For the light spectator quark, we use the HISQ action. We also report a recent progress in determining the critical hopping parameter $\kappa_\text{crit}$ in a completely non-perturbative way.
