"CLEO-c: A New Frontier of Weak and Strong Interactions"
The Cornell Electron-positron Storage Ring (CESR) upgrade has provided a
high luminosity dataset in the charm threshold region. Among the goals
of the CLEO-c experiment are precision measurements of charm leptonic and
semileptonic decay rates. These data are used to confront lattice-QCD
predictions for hadronic decay constants and form factors. Validation of
lattice-QCD will allow for improved CKM constraints. I will overview the
goals of the CLEO-c ecxperiment and report recent progress.
