Symmetries in Subatomic Physics: 3rd International Symposium, Adelaide, Australia, 13-17 March 2000

X. -H Guo

Symmetry principles play a fundamental role in modern nuclear and particle physics. The study of symmetry principles, which govern the universe is basic to modern subatomic physics. Quantum field theories are built around these symmetries. Their occasional violation can offer deep insight into the dynamics of complicated systems. This meeting brought together experts from around the world who are pushing knowledge of symmetries such as parity, charge conjugation, and even Lorentz invariance to the limits. Future developments in theoretical subatomic physics may be completely altered by hitherto unexpected discoveries of symmetry breaking. From neutrino oscillations to B-factories, from beta decay to colliders to masers, the latest theoretical and experimental developments in this field are documented. These proceedings present a snapshot of the state of the art.
