Abstract

Decay constants of D and B mesons are estimated within the framework of a heavy-quark approach using measured isospin mass splittings in the D, D*, B, and B* states to isolate the electromagnetic hyperfine interaction between quarks. A relation following from the use of splittings in kaons is also considered.
