CP violation from the Electroweak SU(2)$_{weak,flavor}$ by $\int \theta F \wedge F $

Question: Why there is NO Charge-Parity (CP) violation from a potential Theta term in the electroweak SU(2)$_{weak,flavor}$ sector by $\theta_{electroweak} \int F \wedge F$? (ps. an explicit ...

Does the Higgs mechanism address the spin statistics problem?

Since the Higgs mechanism is so intimately tied to binding together massless chiral fermions, does it happen to have anything to say about the spin statistics issue? I'm actually assuming the answer ...

Do any good theories exist on why the weak interaction is so profoundly chiral?

I find the profound asymmetry in the sensitivity of left and right chiral particles to be one of the most remarkable analytical observations captured in the Standard Model. Yet for some, I've not ...

What are the prerequisites to study CP violation?

If one would like to study CP violation, what would be the prerequisites for it? For example, until now I have not studied quantum field theory and have done very little classical field theory, but ...

Is there a relationship between Berry-Pancharatnam phase and CP violation in quark mixing?

Berry-Pancharatnam phase is the phase that quantum systems exhibit when they pass through a sequence of states and return to their original state. It's a complex phase and it is different from the ...
