Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: Is string theory compatible with our existence?

Presented by Steve Abel (Durham),

27 November 2001 16:00 in CLC 202

"One of the most important observations in nature is that CP is violated. String theory does not predict this a priori. In this talk I discuss why, and show how CP may be spontaneously broken in the effective action. Nevertheless there remains a serious conflict with experiment that makes it difficult to reconcile string theory with reality."
