HLRZ-Workshop on QCD in Heavy Quark Systems

September 21-22, 1998
HLRZ, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany

Heavy quark physics is a very active area of research and the reliable computation of hadronic states and matrix elements containing b and c quarks is of considerable importance to further tests of the Standard Model.

Aims of the mini-workshop were

  • to review recent progress in the precision of lattice and sum rule techniques both for heavy-heavy and heavy-light hadrons and their decay matrix elements
  • to discuss the demands on theory from the next generation of experiments at B and charm factories.

Topics discussed include:

  • Upsilon Spectroscopy
  • B and D Meson Decays
  • Potential Models
  • Heavy Quark Methods on the Lattice
  • Sum Rule Techniques
  • Determinations of Standard Model Parameters
