"The Kaon B-Parameter from Lattice QCD"
ABSTRACT:
I will discuss the calculation of the Kaon B-parameter, a measure of indirect CP-violation in the Standard Model, using Lattice QCD. In particular, I will talk about the use of the Domain Wall Fermion formulation of Lattice QCD, a formulation which has continuum-like symmetry properties at finite lattice spacing at the expense of the introduction of an additional, fifth, dimension.
