We present the results of a lattice QCD calculation of the pseudoscalar meson decay constants f(pi), f(K), f(D) and f(Ds), performed with N-f = 2 dynamical fermions. The simulation is carried out with the tree-level improved Symanzik gauge action and with the twisted mass fermionic action at maximal twist. We have considered for the final analysis three values of the lattice spacing, a similar or equal to 0.10 fm, 0.09 fm and 0.07 fm, with pion masses down to m(pi) similar or equal to 270 MeV. Our results for the light meson decay constants are f(K) = 158.1(2.4) MeV and f(K)/f(pi) = 1.210(18). From the latter ratio, by using the experimental determination of Gamma(K -> mu nu(mu)(gamma))/Gamma(pi -> mu nu(mu)(gamma)) and the average value of vertical bar V-ud vertical bar from nuclear beta decays, we obtain vertical bar V-us vertical bar = 0.2222(34), in good agreement with the determination from semileptonic K-13 decays and the unitarity constraint. For the D and D-s meson decay constants we obtain f(D) = 197(9) MeV, f(Ds) = 244(8) MeV and f(Ds)/f(D) = 1.24(3). Our result for f(D) is in good agreement with the CLEO experimental measurement. For f(Ds) our determination is smaller than the PDG 2008 experimental average but in agreement with a recent improved measurement by CLEO at the 1.4 sigma level.

Abstract

We present the results of a lattice QCD calculation of the pseudoscalar meson decay constants f(pi), f(K), f(D) and f(Ds), performed with N-f = 2 dynamical fermions. The simulation is carried out with the tree-level improved Symanzik gauge action and with the twisted mass fermionic action at maximal twist. We have considered for the final analysis three values of the lattice spacing, a similar or equal to 0.10 fm, 0.09 fm and 0.07 fm, with pion masses down to m(pi) similar or equal to 270 MeV. Our results for the light meson decay constants are f(K) = 158.1(2.4) MeV and f(K)/f(pi) = 1.210(18). From the latter ratio, by using the experimental determination of Gamma(K -> mu nu(mu)(gamma))/Gamma(pi -> mu nu(mu)(gamma)) and the average value of vertical bar V-ud vertical bar from nuclear beta decays, we obtain vertical bar V-us vertical bar = 0.2222(34), in good agreement with the determination from semileptonic K-13 decays and the unitarity constraint. For the D and D-s meson decay constants we obtain f(D) = 197(9) MeV, f(Ds) = 244(8) MeV and f(Ds)/f(D) = 1.24(3). Our result for f(D) is in good agreement with the CLEO experimental measurement. For f(Ds) our determination is smaller than the PDG 2008 experimental average but in agreement with a recent improved measurement by CLEO at the 1.4 sigma level.
