Homework Help: Research coursework on antimatter

  1. Mar 17, 2008 #1
    I have done a large amount of research (but being only an A level standard physicist probably not understood a lot of it) into antimatter, and why our universe is made primarily of matter and not antimatter... I think I've bitten off more than I can chew in a way as I seem to find myself trying to explain an awful lot of particle physics along the way.

    What I'm after is: An easily understandable explanation of CPT theorem (I have searched the internet and read more than one textbook, but still don't really understand how it would result in asymmetry). If anyone has a link to a good website on the subject hat would be very welcome!

    Also if anyone knows of any stranger ideas about matter-antimatter asymmetry, I am looking to include these in my research. (Again a weblink is just as useful). I'm sure I've read about something to do with string theory (or maybe branes??) and antimatter but can't find the book it was in. So far I've written about CPT violation (badly, I fear) and a little about baryon violation.

    Thanks in advance,
