The mystery of cp violation mit physics annual 2006 sciolla 45 in 1967 the russian physicist andrei sakharov proposed a solution to this puzzle1 sakharovs explanation required the violation of what was considered a fundamental symmetry of nature the cp symmetry. Cp violation cp violation in particle physics violation of the combined conservation laws associated with charge conjugation c and parity p by the weak force which is responsible for reactions such as the radioactive decay of atomic nuclei charge conjugation is a mathematical operation that transforms a. We give the first full next to leading order analytical results in chiral perturbation theory for the charged kaon k 3 slope g and decay rates cp violating asymmetries. Reflecting the explosion of new results over the last decade this second edition has been substantially expanded it introduces charge conjugation parity and time reversal before describing the kobayashi maskawa km theory for cp violation and our understanding of cp violation in kaon decays
