Abstract

In the past year, we calculated with lattice QCD three quantities that were unknown or poorly known. They are the q2 dependence of the form factor in semileptonic D → Klv decay, the decay constant of the D meson, and the mass of the Bc meson. In this talk, we summarize these calculations, with emphasis on their (subsequent) confirmation by experiments.
