Properties of Matter versus Those of Antimatter as a Test of CPT Invariance

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 31)


The general principles of relativistic field theory require invariance under the combined transformation CPT. The simplest way of testing CPT invariance is to compare the mass, the lifetime, and the magnetic moment of a particle, and of its antiparticle. In this contribution, some prospects for the improvement of the limits1 derived from various particle-antiparticle systems are presented, updating an earlier paper.2
