"Studying CP Violation at the SLAC B- Factory"
One of the least-well tested areas of particle physics today
is that of CP violation. Although it has been observed in certain
particle decays, its origin and magnitude is not well understood.
CP violation in particle interactions is a crucial ingredient in
the Big Bang model's description of the predominance of matter over
antimatter in the universe. A new physics program at the
"B-Factory" at the Stanford Linear Accelerator is underway and
promises to resolve this important issue.
