A new framework to tune an improved relativistic heavy-quark action
May 16, 2022
We introduce a new non-perturbative method to tune the parameters of the Columbia formulation of an anisotropic, clover-improved relativistic heavy-quark (RHQ) action.
By making use of suitable observables which can be computed at a sequence of heavy-quark mass values, employing an $O(a)$-improved discretized action with domain-wall chiral fermion, and safely interpolated between the accessible heavy-quark mass region and the static point predicted by heavy-quark effective theory, we are able to precisely determine the unknown coefficients of the RHQ action.
In this proof-of-principle study we benefit from the RBC/UKQCD Iwasaki gauge configurations with $2+1$ flavors of dynamical quarks, at three values of the lattice spacing varying from $0.11$ to $0.062$ fm.
Preliminary results and applications to bottom spectroscopy are also presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
