'This is by far the best account I have seen of the 'CP-problem', one of the most intriguing issues in modern physics.' A. Pais
'… could not be more timely … [does] an excellent job in explaining and summarizing on this subject.' Physics Today
'The book is comprehensive … the book is self-contained, original, and thorough in its discussions of CP violation in K and B decays … In summary, this is a very beautiful, thorough, and well-written book ripe with rigor, originality, and insight. I would strongly recommend it to all researchers in the field of elementary particle physics and to anyone else wanting to understand the basis, evolution, and likely future development of this important aspect of modern particle physics … It is a book one will value for years to come.' Am. J. Phys.
'The cut of the book is theoretical but is suitable and stimulating for an experimentalist, showing rigour and insight … the reader is shown how to see the CP 'wood' among the 'trees' of phenomenological details, without missing anything of importance.' CERN Courier
'The structure of the book follows an excellent layout … excellently structured and well written by two renowned scientists and eminent experts in the field. … particularly useful for Ph.D. students and young postdocs. …the scientifically outstanding text of the book makes it suitable for everyday reading of experienced researchers, Ph.D. students and other physicists working in the field of experimental or theoretical elementary particle physics … can be best categorised, as 'All you wanted to know about CP violation but you never imagined finding it in a single book.' Congratulations to the authors and many thanks for the excellent writing!' Contemporary Physics
Ikaros Bigi was born in Munich, Germany. Following undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the Universities of Munich, Oxford and Stanford, he has taught and researched at the Max-Planck Institute for Physics, CERN, RWTH Aachen, UCLA, the University of Oregon, SLAC and the University of Notre Dame. He is a former scholarship student of the Maximilianeum Foundation and Scholarship Foundation of the German People and has been appointed both a Heisenberg Fellow and a Max-Kade Fellow.
Ichiro Sanda was born in Tokyo, and at the age of 14 accompanied his father who was transferred to the United States on business. After a bachelor's degree in physics from the University of Illinois and a PhD from Princeton University, he taught and researched at Columbia University, Fermilab and Rockefeller University. In 1992, after 34 years in the US, he went to Japan as a professor of physics at Nagoya University. He is now the chairman of the physics department. He is a winner of the 10th Inoue Prize (1993) and the 43rd Nishina Memorial Prize (1997). Both prizes have been awarded for his work in CP violation, and on B physics.
