Precision physics calculation


Phys.Org (Oct. 13) -- Illinois physicists are part of a team of theoretical high-energy physicists in the Fermilab Lattice and MILC Collaborations publishing a new high-precision calculation that could significantly advance the indirect search for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). The calculation applies to a particularly rare decay of the B meson (a subatomic particle), which is sometimes also called a "penguin decay" process.
