Abstract

This thesis gives details and results of calculations of form factors for a number of $b\to c$ transitions using lattice quantum chromodynamics. We apply two complementary approaches to dealing with the heavy $b$ quark in the lattice context (the NRQCD approach and heavy-HISQ approach). We find the latter to be more promising for future calculations.
