Ryan, S. M. ‘Lattice determinations of the strange quark mass’ in proceedings of the Conference on Kaon Physics (K 99), University of Chicago, USA, June 21-26, 1999, pp 319 – 325.
The importance of the strange quark mass, as a fundamental parameter of
the Standard Model (SM) and as an input to many interesting quantities,
has been highlighted in many reviews, eg in Ref . A first principles
calculation of ms is possible in lattice QCD but to date there has been a
rather large spread in values from lattice calculations. This review aims
to clarify the situation by explaining the particular systematic errors and
their effects and illustrating the emerging consenus.
