  • Published 2006


CP violation (CPV ), first detected in KL → ππ decays in 1964 [1], is accomodated in the Standard Model (SM) by a CP -violating phase in the CKM matrix, the matrix which describes the mixing of the quarks (under the weak interaction) [2]. From the unitarity constraints of the CKM matrix, we have VudV ∗ ub + VcdV ∗ cb + VtdV ∗ tb = 0, the so-called Unitarity… (More)
