In this second part we continue the overview of the recent lattice determination of αs by the ALPHA collaboration. Starting from the result for ΛNf=3MS/μ0 discussed in the first part , we first present a precise non-perturbative determination of the Λ-parameter ofNf=3 QCD. Using perturbative decoupling to match theNf=3 andNf=5 theories we then extract a precise value for αs. The final result:αs(mZ) =0.11852(84), reaches subpercent accuracy.
