Parity and Time Reversal Invariance in Atoms

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 201)

Abstract

In these four lectures we discuss current work on the status of parity (P) and time-reversal invariance (T) in atomic physics. A feature of the treatment will be a unified approach to parity non-conservation (PNC) without associated violation of time-reversal invariance, P not TV, PNC with associated T violation, P and TV, and T violation without PNC, T not PV. The approach will be primarily pedagogical, aiming to give a feel for the subject; completeness will not be attempted; the reader interested in more detail should consult the general reviews to be found in references 1–5.
