Abstract

The task of the Belle II experiment is to search new physics in particle decays at unprecedented high precision. The following chapter summarizes the basic concepts how this task is performed and which techniques are used for this. The information given in this chapter is described in more detail in various other places. A reference with a general overview is included in each section.
