### Parametrisations of the D -> K l nu form factor and the determination of \hat{g}

The vector form factor f_+(t) of the semileptonic decay D -> K l nu, measured
recently with a high accuracy, can be used to determine the strong coupling
constant g_{D_s^* D K}. The latter is related to the normalised coupling
\hat{g} releveant in heavy-meson chiral perturbation theory. This determination
relies on the estimation of the residue of the form factor at the D_s^* pole
and thus on an extrapolation of the form factor in the unphysical region
(m_D-m_K)^2<t<(m_D+m_K)^2. We test this extrapolation for several
parametrisations of the form factors by determining the value of \hat{g}, whose
value can be compared to other (experimental and theoretical) estimates.
Several unsophisticated parametrisations, differing by the amount of physical
information that they embed, are shown to pass this test. An apparently more
elaborated parametrisation of form factors, the so-called z-expansion, is at
variance with the other models, and we point out some significant shortcomings
of this parametrisation for the problem under consideration.Comment: 16 pages, 2 figures. A few references added. Accepted for publication

### Quark Masses and Renormalization Constants from Quark Propagator and 3-point Functions

We have computed the light and strange quark masses and the renormalization
constants of the quark bilinear operators, by studying the large-p^2 behaviour
of the lattice quark propagator and 3-point functions. The calculation is
non-perturbatively improved, at O(a), in the chiral limit. The method used to
compute the quark masses has never been applied so far, and it does not require
an explicit determination of the quark mass renormalization constant.Comment: LATTICE99 (Improvement and Renormalization) - 3 pages, 2 figure

### Decays of Heavy Mesons

We present preliminary results for heavy to light transitions of pseudoscalar
mesons, induced by the vector and tensor operators. This lattice study is
performed in quenched approximation, by using the nonperturbatively improved
Wilson action and operators. We also update the values of the heavy-light meson
decay constants.Comment: LATT99(Heavy Quarks), 3 pages, 2 figure

### Lattice calculation of SU(3) flavor breaking ratios in B - anti-B mixing

We present an unquenched lattice calculation for the SU(3) flavor breaking
ratios of the heavy-light decay constants and the $\Delta B = 2$ matrix
elements. The calculation was performed on $16^3 \times 32$ lattices with two
dynamical flavors of domain-wall quarks and inverse lattice spacing $1/a =
1.69(5)$ GeV. Heavy quarks were implemented using an improved lattice
formulation of the static approximation. In the infinite heavy-quark mass limit
we obtain $f_{B_s}/f_{B_d} = 1.29(4)(6)$, $B_{B_s}/B_{B_d} = 1.06(6)(4)$, $\xi
= 1.33(8)(8)$ where the first error is statistical and the second systematic.Comment: 23 pages, 8 figures, RevTeX4; mentioned existence of 1/m_b

### B-parameters of the complete set of matrix elements of (Delta B = 2) operators from the lattice

We compute on the lattice the ``bag'' parameters of the five (Delta B = 2)
operators of the supersymmetric basis, by combining their values determined in
full QCD and in the static limit of HQET. The extrapolation of the QCD results
from the accessible heavy-light meson masses to the B-meson mass is constrained
by the static result. The matching of the corresponding results in HQET and in
QCD is for the first time made at NLO accuracy in the MSbar(NDR)
renormalization scheme. All results are obtained in the quenched approximation.Comment: 27 pages (5 figures

### Combined Relativistic and static analysis for all Delta B=2 operators

We analyse matrix elements of Delta B=2 operators by combining QCD results
with the ones obtained in the static limit of HQET. The matching of all the QCD
operators to HQET is made at NLO order. To do that we have to include the
anomalous dimension matrix up to two loops, both in QCD and HQET, and the one
loop matching for all the Delta B=2 operators. The matrix elements of these
operators are relevant for the prediction of the B-\bar B mixing, B_s meson
width difference and supersymmetric effects in Delta B=2 transitions.Comment: 3 pages, 1 figure. Lattice2001(heavyquark

### Power Corrections to Perturbative QCD and OPE in Gluon Green Functions

We show that QCD Green functions in Landau Gauge exhibit sizable $O(1/\mu^2)$
corrections to the expected perturbative behavior at energies as high as 10
GeV. We argue that these are due to a $$-condensate which does not vanish
in Landau gauge.Comment: 3 pages 1 figure lattice2001 (gaugetheories

### A Theoretical Prediction of the Bs-Meson Lifetime Difference

We present the results of a quenched lattice calculation of the operator
matrix elements relevant for predicting the Bs width difference. Our main
result is (\Delta\Gamma_Bs/\Gamma_Bs)= (4.7 +/- 1.5 +/- 1.6) 10^(-2), obtained
from the ratio of matrix elements, R(m_b)=/<\bar
B_s^0|Q_L|B_s^0>=-0.93(3)^(+0.00)_(-0.01). R(m_b) was evaluated from the two
relevant B-parameters, B_S^{MSbar}(m_b)=0.86(2)^(+0.02)_(-0.03) and
B_Bs^{MSbar}(m_b) = 0.91(3)^(+0.00)_(-0.06), which we computed in our
simulation.Comment: 21 pages, 7 PostScript figure
