Description

The precision determination of the CKM matrix element $|V_{cb}|$ from
semileptonic $B \to D^*$ and $B \to D$ decays provides an important input to test
the unitarity of the CKM matrix and search for new physics. In recent
analyses, higher values of $|V_{cb}|$ were extracted using (the so-called BGL)
form factor parametrization, which allows more freedom to describe the
experimental spectra. We develop a systematic approach to assess the
role of the truncation order of the form factor parametrization, and
study its impact on the extracted value of $|V_{cb}|$. In addition, we survey
the current status of $|V_{cb}|$ extractions and their compatibility with heavy
quark symmetry.
