I understand decay is truly a random process approximated by half-life. So two particles that appear similar to us in every way will experience decay at different times impossible for us to predict.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Are there any theories that explain some underlying process that dictates this action. Even if it is impossible to know the variables in the formula and thus make a calculation. Is this due to the uncertainty principle?

Is this it: CKM matrix?
