Opportunities exist to study Beyond the Standard Model effects with lattice QCD calculations.

Graphic representation of CKM unitary traiangle Lattice QCD


Global fit to experimental flavor measurements combined with Standard Model theory, known as the CKM unitarity triangle. Deviations from the CKM paradigm would manifest themselves as inconsistencies between the colored bands. Great opportunities exist for improving the power of the search for Beyond the Standard Model effects in flavor physics by improving lattice QCD calculations.
