We give an explanation of the $\mathrm{CP}$ conservation of strong interactions which includes the effects of pseudoparticles. We find it is a natural result for any theory where at least one flavor of fermion acquires its mass through a Yukawa coupling to a scalar field which has nonvanishing vacuum expectation value. 
The strong CP problem and axions Seminar
We investigate the possibility of CP symmetry violation in strong interactions, also called the strong CP problem. We show how the problem arises in the theory of quantum chromodynamics and its
Effective Field Theory Techniques Applied to the Properties of the Axion
We utilize the effective field theory approach to study the properties of the axion. In particular, with s as well as u and d quarks regarded to be relatively light we derive a formula for the mass
Interaction of axions with relativistic spinning particles
We consider a covariant phenomenological model, which describes an interaction between a pseudoscalar (axion) field and massive spinning particles. The model extends the Bagrmann-Michel-Telegdy

We present two original derivations of the restoration of C and CP symmetry within QCD, simplest in “standalone QCD” but extendable to include conserved QED, in the limit [Formula: see text]
