Electric dipole moments as probes of new physics

  title={Electric dipole moments as probes of new physics},
  author={M. Pospelov and A. Ritz},
  journal={Annals of Physics},
We review several aspects of flavour-diagonal CP-violation, focussing on the role played by the electric dipole moments (EDMs) of leptons, nucleons, atoms, and molecules, which constitute the source of several stringent constraints on new CP-violating physics. We dwell specifically on the calculational aspects of applying the hadronic EDM constraints, reviewing in detail the application of QCD sum-rules to the calculation of nucleon EDMs and CP-odd pion–nucleon couplings. We also consider the… Expand
