A brief document that provides the collection of uptodate inputs to the global CKM analysis and the numerical results found. 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 from limit on the B^{+}→τ^{+} ν
branching fraction (recent result from BABAR)

Constrains on sin(2β+γ) from the measurement of timedependent CP asymmetries in D^{(*)} π (ρ). We use the Moriond05 HFAG average as input. The extraction of the UT angles relies on SU(3) symmetry for the estimates of the suppressedtoleading amplitude ratios. We use r = 0.019 ± 0.004 and r^{*} = 0.015 + 0.004 / – 0.006 , and apply an additional theoretical uncertainty in form of a 30% error range to these.

New physics in B^{0} B^{0}bar Mixing
New physics in B^{0} B^{0}bar Mixing can be described modelindependently by
introducing two new parameters measuring the relative strength (r_{d}^{2})
and the relative phase between the B^{0} B^{0}bar mixing matrix element
containing contributions from SM as well as from NP contributions
compared to SM contributions only:


Constraints from V_{cb} + V_{ub} , Δm_{d}=Δm_{d}^{{SM}} * r_{d}^{2} and sin(2β+2Θ_{d}) in the (ρbar,ηbar) plane. 
eps gif 

Constraints from V_{cb} + V_{ub} , Δm_{d}=Δm_{d}^{{SM}} * r_{d}^{2} and sin(2β+2Θ_{d}) in the (2Θ_{d} , r_{d}^{2}) plane. 
eps gif 

Since there are four free parameters in the fit (ρbar,ηbar,2*Θ_{d},r_{d}^{2})
but only three constraints depend on those there is no other constraint in the
(ρbar,ηbar) plane visible but the one coming from V_{ub} and V_{cb} alone.
As a consequence, the allowed region in the (2*Θ_{d},r_{d}^{2}) plane is large.
When using in addition the following inputs: cos(2β) > 0 (suggested by data), α (ππ, 3π, ρρ), γ the allowed regions are substantially reduced: 

in the (ρbar,ηbar) plane.

in the (2*Θ_{d},r_{d}^{2}) plane. 
eps gif 

There are two solutions left. The SM solution (2*Θ_{d} = 0 ,r_{d}^{2} = 1) is prefered. If the other solution can be eliminated with more data the possible additional phase from NP could not be very large (<15 degree). The relative strength of NP to SM contributions can still easily be of order 100%.
