The implications of the most recent experimental results in the B and K meson systems on the CKM paradigm are investigated by means of a global fit to the theoretical predictions of the Standard Model. We advocate the frequentist approach Rfit, which is implemented in the CKMFitter package. Within this approach, constraints on the CKM parameters and other quantities of interest are obtained, and extensions of the Standard Model are investigated.

Flavour Physics and CP Violation
After listing basic properties of the Standard Model (SM) that play the crucial role in the field of flavour and CP violation, we discuss the following topics: 1) CKM matrix and the unitarityExpand
Waiting for Precise Measurements of K^+->pi^+ nu nu and K_L->pi^0 nu nu
In view of future plans for accurate measurements of the theoretically clean branching ratios Br(K+ -> pi+ nu nu) and Br(KL -> pi0 nu nu), that should take place in the next decade, we collect theExpand
CP asymmetry A(psi K(S)), sin 2beta, the sign of Delta M(B) and the physics beyond the standard model
We demonstrate that the sign of the B^0-\bar B^0 mass difference \Delta M_B is irrelevant for the extraction of the angle \beta=\phi_1 of the unitarity triangle from the CP asymmetry A_{\psi K_S}.Expand
