Abstract.We present an up-to-date profile of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix with emphasis on the interpretation of recent CP-violation results from the B factories. For this purpose, we review all relevant experimental and theoretical inputs from the contributing domains of electroweak interaction. We give the “standard” determination of the apex of the Unitarity Triangle, namely the Wolfenstein parameters $\overline\rho$ and $\overline\eta$, by means of a global CKM fit. The fit is…

Is the unitarity of the quark-mixing CKM matrix violated in neutron beta-decay?

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 2002

A new measurement of neutron beta-decay asymmetry is reported on, which finds a deviation from the unitarity condition for the first row of the CKM matrix of Delta = 0.0083(28), which is 3.0 times the stated error.

To show how new physics may give very different results, this work looks at the predictions of a simple model where both the standard model and superweak contributions to the K 0 and B 0 mass matrices coexist and finds that practically any values are allowed for the asymmetries.

This work studies the success to describe hyperon semileptonic decays of four models that incorporate second-order SU(3) symmetry breaking corrections and concludes that only the model whose corrections are O(m_s) and O( m_s^{3/2}) is successful.

This work reanalyzed the hyperon-decay data using the pattern of symmetry breaking predicted by the quark model including the center-of-mass correction and finds that the SU(3)-broken picture is far superior to the assumption of perfect SU( 3), and provides a good fit to experiment.
