Research output: Contribution to journalConference Articlepeer-review


We calculate the neutral kaon mixing parameter, BK, to next-to-leading order in mixed action (domain-wall valence with staggered sea quarks) chiral perturbation theory. We find the expression for BK in this mixed-action case only differs from the continuum partially quenched expression by an additional analytic term. Additionally, in preparation for a lattice calculation of BK with a mixed action, we discuss quantitatively the effects of the taste violations as well as finite volume effects.
