Main Question or Discussion Point
anyone know what research is being done in CP symmetry violations and Matter Antimatter Asymmetry currently?
While it's true that CP violation is equivalent to violation of time reversal symmetry (at least, as long as CPT is a good symmetry; and, that's a pretty good bet, since CPT symmetry is equivalent to Lorentz symmetry, as I understand it), this is quite different from time translation symmetry. There's no inconsistency with saying that allowed physical processes look different when run forwards than they do when run backwards, but that either way, they're the same at any time.baryogenesis coupled with cp symmetry violation, however, does offer an explanation for natures preference for matter ... but doesnt this also threaten the fact that the laws of physics are constant through time? also, if not cp symmetry, shoudnt there be some other symmetry that would govern particle formation?
