Flavour Oscillation and CP Violation of B Mesons

  • Roland Waldi
Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 591)

Abstract

The phenomena of meson-anti-meson flavour oscillation and CP violation are presented with emphasis on their description within the Standard Model. The experimental methods used in their investigation are discussed, and the presently available results on B mesons are shown.
