B mesons are ideally suited to test the Standard Model Flavour Sector through experimental measurements of the CKM matrix elements |V_ub| and |V_cb|. Theoretical calculations of these matrix elements are also required, which is where lattice QCD steps in. However, heavy quarks cannot be placed on the lattice in the same manner as light quarks. The lattice introduces discretisation errors that...
