Results as of FPCP 2006
Menu:
A brief document that provides the collection of uptodate inputs to the global CKM analysis and the numerical results obtained from it. The results include: Wolfenstein parameters, UT angles, (combinations of) CKM elements, theory parameters and rare branching fractions. Detailed background information on the methodology and the treatment of experimental and theoretical uncertainties is provided in hepph/0406184.

Constraint in the (ρbar,ηbar) plane from the simultaneous use of the limit on the B^{+}→τ^{+}ν branching fraction and Δm_{d}. Also shown is the constraint one would obtain by a precise measurement of BR(B^{+}→τ^{+}ν). It illustrates the gain in accuracy obtained from the simultaneous use of the two constraints ( B^{+}→τ^{+}ν and Δm_{d}), where the uncertainty from fB is reduced (it cancels in the ratio).

Constraints on sin(2β+γ) from the measurement of timedependent CP asymmetries in
D^{(*)} π (ρ). Moriond06 HFAG average is used as input. The extraction of the UT angles relies on SU(3)
symmetry for the estimates of the suppressedtoleading amplitude ratios. We use r = 0.013 ± 0.0023 and r^{*} = 0.019 ± 0.0029, and apply an additional theoretical uncertainty in form of a 15% error range to these.
