Supercomputing the Strange Difference Between Matter and Antimatter

Brookhaven National Laboratory (11/20/15)

An international group of physicists including researchers from the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) has published the first calculation of direct “CP” symmetry violation, and if the prediction represented by this calculation does not match experimental outcomes, it would conclusively prove the existence of new, unknown phenomena that lie outside of the Standard Model. 151 more words
