Fermilab Lattice and MILC Collaborations
We present new preliminary results for the leptonic decay constants fB and fD+ determined in
2+ 1 flavor lattice QCD at lattice spacings a 0.09, 0.12 and 0.15 fm. Results are obtained
using the MILC Collaboration gauge configuration ensembles, clover heavy quarks in the Fermi-
lab interpretation and improved staggered light quarks. Decay constants, computed at partially
quenched combinations of the valence and sea light quark masses, are used to determine the low-
energy parameters of staggered chiral perturbation theory. The physical decay constants are found
in an extrapolation using the parameterized chiral formula.
