Discrete Symmetries and CP Violation: From Experiment to Theory

Marco Sozzi


The investigation of discrete symmetries is a fascinating subject which has been central to the agenda of physics research for fifty years, and has been the target of many experiments, ongoing and in preparation, all over the world. This book approaches the subject from a somewhat less traditional angle: it puts more emphasis on the experimental aspects of the field, trying to provide a wider picture than usual and to convey the intellectual challenge of experimental physics. The book includes the related connection to phenomenology, a purpose for which the precision experiments in this field ... More

Keywords: experimental physics, phenomenology, discrete symmetries, parity, charge conjugation, time reversal, CP symmetry, microscopic physics
