  • Lattice determinations of the strange quark mass 

    RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (University of Chicago, 1999)
    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 ...
  • Lattice QCD calculation of anti-B --> D lepton anti-neutrino decay form-factors at zero recoil 

    RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (2008-10-09)
    A lattice QCD calculation of the B? ?Dl?? decay form factors is presented. We obtain the value of the form factor h+(w) at the zero-recoil limit w=1 with high precision by considering a ratio of correlation functions in ...

    PEARDON, MICHAEL JAMES; RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (Proceedings of Science, 2005)
    Monte Carlo studies on non-perturbative 2D Euclidean Quantum Gravity can be done with the use of the Dynamical Triangulations method. The Monte Carlo moves defined within the dynamical triangulation method can be encompassed ...
  • Non-perturbative study of QCD on a 2 + 2 anisotropic lattice 

    PEARDON, MICHAEL JAMES; RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (Elsevier, 2004)
    We present preliminary results for the non-perturbative determination of the parameters in a 2+2 anisotropic action. The parameters are required to restore Lorentz invariance in long-distance correlators, using the ...

    PEARDON, MICHAEL JAMES; RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (2006)
    A quark action designed for highly anisotropic-lattice simulations is discussed. The mass-dependence of the parameters in the action is studied and the results are presented. Applications of this action in studies of ...
  • A perturbative determination of the parameters of an anisotropic quark action 

    PEARDON, MICHAEL JAMES; RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (Elsevier, 2005)
    The parameters of a 3+1 anisotropic quark action with Symanzik-improved glue are determined at 1-loop in perturbation theory.
  • Practical all-to-all propagators for lattice QCD 

    PEARDON, MICHAEL JAMES; RYAN, SINEAD MARIE; SKULLERUD, JONIVAR (Elsevier, 2005)
    A new method for computing all elements of the lattice quark propagator is proposed. The method combines the spectral decomposition of the propagator, computing the lowest eigenmodes exactly, with noisy estimators which ...
  • Progress in leptonic and semileptonic decays in lattice QCD 

    RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (American Physical Society, 1999)
    The status of lattice calculations of heavy quark phenomenology is reviewed. Particular emphasis is placed on the understanding and control of the calculational uncertainties. The ensuing implications for constraining ...

    PEARDON, MICHAEL JAMES; RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (Elsevier, 2003)
    We discuss the implementation of QCD on 2 + 2 anisotropic lattices. Technical details regarding the choice of the action as well as perturbative and non-perturbative improvement are analyzed. The physical applications ...

    RYAN, SINEAD MARIE (American Physical Society, 2000)
    We present a comprehensive study of the masses of pseudoscalar and vector mesons, as well as octet and decuplet baryons computed in O(a)-improved quenched lattice QCD. Results have been obtained using the nonperturbative ...
