Neutral K Mesons and CP Violation
- 298 Downloads
The neutral K mesons, with their medium-sized masses and their capacity of interacting both weakly and strongly, seem to be specially selected by nature to demonstrate through a few typical phenomena the reality of quantum effects. Even if they did not exist, as L. B. Okun once said, we would have invented them in order to illustrate the fundamental principles of quantum physics.
