Semi-leptonic form factors for B→πlν decays from Lattice QCD

Precision tests of the unitary of the CKM matrix is an active area in the search for new physics. The desire for additional determinations of the matrix element |Vub| and a long-standing 2-3σ discrepancy between results from inclusive B→Xu and exclusive B→π processes motivate the study of QCD B→π semi-leptonic form factors on the lattice. The status of our preliminary B→πlν results will be discussed by highlighting updates to our analysis. The final results of this project will provide updates to the 2015 RBC/UKQCD B→πlν result.
