Since the Standard Model most probably cannot explain the large value of CP asymmetries recently observed in D-meson decays we propose the fourth quark-lepton generation explanation of it. As a byproduct weakly mixed leptons of the fourth generation make it possible to save the baryon number of the Universe from erasure by sphalerons. An impact of the 4th generation on BBN is briefly discussed.

BRIEF REVIEW OF CHARM PHYSICS
Charm physics has attracted increased attention after the first evidence for charm mixing was observed in 2007. The level of attention has risen sharply after LHCb reported first evidence for CP
What did we learn in theory from the $\Delta A_{CP}$-saga?
The measurement of CP violation in the charm sector triggered a lot of theoretical activities and re-considerations. Nevertheless currently neither theory nor experiment have reached definite
SU(3)F breaking through final state interactions and CP asymmetries in D→PP decays
We analyse $D$ decays to two pseudoscalars $(\pi,K)$ assuming the dominant source of $\mathrm{SU}(3)_F$ breaking lies in final state interactions. We obtain an excellent agreement with experimental
Self-energy operator of a massive neutrino in an external magnetic field
The effect of the magnetic field on the properties of a massive neutrino is analyzed. A general expression is derived in terms of the self-energy operator of the neutrino in an external magnetic

CP violation in D-meson decays and the fourth generation
AbstractThe LHCb collaboration measured CPV at the level of one percent in the difference of asymmetries in $$ D^0 (\mathop {D^0 }\limits^ \leftharpoondown ) $$ → π+π−, K+K− decays. If confirmed on a
Size of direct CP violation in singly Cabibbo-suppressed D decays
The first experimental evidence for direct CP violation in charm-quark decays has recently been presented by the LHCb collaboration in the difference between the D -> K+ K- and D -> pi+ pi-
Leptogenesis with dirac neutrinos
We describe a "neutrinogenesis" mechanism whereby, in the presence of right-handed neutrinos with sufficiently small pure Dirac masses, (B+L)-violating sphaleron processes create the baryon asymmetry
On the role of the final-state interactions in rare B decays
AbstractThe effects of final-state interactions (FSI) in hadronic B decays are investigated. The model for FSI, based on Regge phenomenology of high-energy hadronic interactions, is proposed. It is
THE PRIMORDIAL ABUNDANCE OF 4He: EVIDENCE FOR NON-STANDARD BIG BANG NUCLEOSYNTHESIS
We present a new determination of the primordial helium mass fraction Yp , based on 93 spectra of 86 low-metallicity extragalactic H II regions, and taking into account the latest developments
Search for unstable heavy and excited leptons in e+e− collisions at ∝s = 170-172 GeV
We have searched for unstable neutral and charged heavy leptons, N and L±, and for excited states of neutral and charged leptons, ν* e*, μ* and τ*, in e+e− collisions at centre-of-mass energies of
Constraining the mixing matrix for Standard Model with four generations: time dependent and semi-leptonic CP asymmetries in $B_d^0$, $B_s$ and $D^0$
Using existing experimental information from K, B and D decays as well as electroweak precision tests and oblique parameters, we provide constraints and correlations on the parameters of the 4X4
