### C-parity violation evidence

I know about the CP-violation experiments from the 60's and the P-violation from the 50's. But, is there a similar experiment which displays (perhaps historically in the same way as the experiements ...

### Schroedinger and Klein-Gordon equation and their complex conjugate

Let's consider the Schroedinger equation $$i\hbar\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\psi=-\frac{\hbar}{2m}\nabla^2\psi$$ If I have a wavefunction $\psi$ as a solution, then its ...

### Is Charge Conjugation Representation Dependent?

I'm having a problem understanding section 7 of this paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/1006.1718 The author defines the commonly know $\Psi^c$ as $\textit{C}\Psi \textit{C}^{-1}=\eta \hat{\Psi}$ in ...

### Conservation of $C$-Parity and $P$-parity

Under what situations are $C$-Parity $C=(-1)^{L+S}$ and/or $P$-parity $P=-(-1)^L$ conserved? ( $L$ here is the relative angular momentum and S is the total intrinsic spin). It would make sense that ...

### Symmetry properties of gamma matrices

While reading a paper on supersymmetry i faced the following problem. Its about the symmetry property of charge conjugation matrix in different space time dimension. The charge conjugation matrix is ...

### Charge-conjugation of Majorana pair

I was reading this article about WIMP pair annihilation. At page six the author says that under charge conjugation a state of Majorana particles with orbital angular momentum $L$ and spin angular ...

### How to determine if interaction is allowed?

I'm trying to determine if the reaction $$n\rightarrow p\pi^-$$ is allowed. First of, this doesn't list this as one of the decay modes of the neutron, so I suspect that it should not be allowed. ...

### Charge conjugation and chirality

while I was reading about charge conjugation I found some (apparently) contradictory facts. For example Itzykson & Zuber says (page 153) "Up to a phase, $\cal C$ interchanges particles and ...

### Invariance under charge conjugation… Or not?

I have read some paper which says that the electroweak Lagrangian includes these terms like $\bar{\psi} \gamma_a\gamma_5\psi$ and $\bar{\psi} \gamma_a \psi$. They violate charge conjugation symmetry. ...

### Charge-conjugation of Weyl spinors

I am having trouble reconciling two facts I am aware of: the fact that the charge conjugate of a spinor tranforms in the same representation as the original spinor, and the fact that (in certain, ...
