On the Connection Between CP-Violation, Muon-Neutrino Lifetime, Muonium Conversion and K0-Decays: An Explicit Model

The purpose of this note is to present an explicit model of CP-violation. There is a need for intuitive models of CP-violation, because most studies in this area in the last 20 years have been phenomenological and “the present theories of CP-violation are rather unsatisfactory”1 There is still no clear understanding why CP-violation only occurs in K0-system (and perhaps in B0-system) and what it means. The phenomenon is still characterized by two small experimental numbers ε and ε’, of the order of 10-3 and 10-6, respectively. The second one is consistent with being zero.
