Abstract

We calculate the O(a) improvement coefficient for the axial-vector current using the nonperturbative method proposed by the LANL group. Results for the coefficient in the range beta = 5.93 to 6.2 are presented. We find C/sub A/ is close to the 1-loop tadpole-improved perturbative value. In addition, scaling of the pseudoscalar decay constant and renormalised quark mass is improved compared to that obtained using the (larger) C/sub A/ values obtained by the ALPHA collaboration.
