CPT Student Seminar: B-Mixing: Sum-rules to CKM

Presented by Danny King, Durham University, IPPP
9 December 2019 17:00 in OC218

In this talk I will give an introduction to B-meson mixing, focusing on the determination of non-perturbative input through HQET sum rules. I will demonstrate how the sum rule works and then highlight the advantages of using it over alternative methods, i.e Lattice QCD, in the context of the bag parameter. Finally, I will illustrate the importance of mixing constraints for the determination of the CKM matrix and in testing the Standard Model.
