We use recent Belle results on $\bar{B}^0\rightarrow D^{*+}l^-\bar{\nu}_l$ decays to extract the CKM element $|V_{cb}|$ with two different but well-founded parameterizations of the form factors. We show that the CLN and BGL parameterizations lead to quite different results for $|V_{cb}|$ and provide a simple explanation of this unexpected behaviour. A long lasting discrepancy between the inclusive and exclusive determinations of $|V_{cb}|$ may have to be thoroughly reconsidered. Read More

We re-examine the determination of $|V_{cb}|$ from $B\to D \ell \nu$ in view of recent experimental and theoretical progress, discussing the parameterization of the form factors and studying the role played by the unitarity constraints. Our fit to experimental and lattice results for $B\to D \ell \nu$ gives $|V_{cb}|=40.49(97)\ 10^{-3}$ and to $R(D)= 0. Read More
