B and D Meson Decay Constants

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We present an update of our calculations of the decay constants of the D, D{sub s}, B, and B{sub s} mesons in unquenched 2+1 flavor QCD. We use the MILC library of improved staggered gauge ensembles at lattice spacings 0.09, 0.12, and 0.15 fm, clover heavy quarks with the Fermilab normalizations, and improved staggered light valence quarks.
