he quark flavor sector of the Standard Model is a fertile ground to look for new physics effects through a unitarity test of the Cabbibo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix. We present a lattice QCD calculation of the scalar and the vector form factors (over a large q2 region including q2 = 0) associated with the D→ Klv semi-leptonic decay. This calculation will then allow us to determine the central CKM matrix element, Vcs in the Standard Model, by comparing the lattice QCD results for the form factors and the experimental decay rate. This form factor calculation has been performed on the Nf = 2 + 1 + 1 MILC HISQ ensembles with the physical light quark masses.
