This chapter discusses the phenomenology of CP violation in heavy (D and B) flavoured mesons. The situation in the charm sector is briefly reviewed before focusing on the B system, the only system besides that of K in which evidence of CP violation was found, with some added value: as a consequence of their heavier mass, B mesons are generally more sensitive to the mechanism of CP violation embodied in the Standard Model and also exhibit a much larger set of possible decays, some of them being more easily tractable from a theoretical point of view. While no qualitatively new features of CP violation were found in the B system, large effects were observed in many decay modes, some of them allowing significant quantitative test of the SM picture. Suggested further reading and exercise problems are provided at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   CP violation, flavoured mesons, D mesons, B mesons, B system
