Title: CP Violation (4/4)

Existence of antimatter is a consequence of the combination of special relativity and quantum mechanics. No 'primordial' antimatter's observed, need CP violation. CP broken by the charged weak interacmore »tion. The weak and mass eigenstates of quarks are different, and this difference is described by the CKM matrix. There is a clear (and unexplained!) hierarchical structure to the CKM matrix...with 3 (or more families, one can have a complex phase(s) in the CKM matrix, and this allows for CP violation! Measurements show that CKM describes the dominant (only?) source of CP violation (at the EW scale). But it doesn't explain the matter--antimatter asymmetry of the universe.« less
