Strong P, CP, T violations in heavy-ion collisions

  • P. D. Morley
  • I. A. Schmidt


We consider the local excitation of the vacuum into an excited state which has the possibility of being CP violating. This gives rise to a dramatic effect: P, CP and T symmetries violated in high energy heavy-ion collisions at the level of a few percent.
