CP Violation: Beyond Field Theory?

Authors: Andrea Gregori

We investigate CP violation in a theoretical framework in which field theory appears only as an approximate description. In particular, the breaking of the time reversal symmetry does not rely on a Kobayashi-Maskawa phase. We show how our approach allows to obtain the correct value of the CP asymmetry not only for the decays of K mesons, but also for the D mesons. In the case of B mesons, there is not yet a precise measurement, and our computation results in a prediction compatible with the current experimental bounds. Within the same theoretical framework, we also obtain the correct value of the baryon asymmetry.
