Abstract

We describe a calculation of heavy-light decay constants including virtual quark loop effects. We have generated dynamical gauge configurations at three β values using two flavors of Kogut-Susskind quarks with a range of masses. These are analyzed with a Wilson valence quark action. Preliminary results based on a "fat-link" clover valence quark action are also reported. Results from the two methods differ by 30 to 50 MeV, which is presumably due to significant - but as yet unobserved - lattice spacing dependence in one or both of the approaches.
