The Search for (more) CP Violation
One of the ingredients needed to explain why our Universe consists of matter rather than antimatter is CP violation, the violation of charge-conjugation + parity symmetry. Two Nobel Prizes have been awarded for CP violation, covering both experimental and theoretical work. Yet, we still do not observe enough CP violation to explain the baryon asymmetry of the Universe. In this talk I'll review what we've learned about CP violation from B and D meson decays, and discuss future prospects in this area for the recently upgraded experiments Belle II and LHCb.
