I sincerely apologize for your time and effort if you find it annoying. It seems that there are few people left who are not satisfied with CP violation theory of Lee and Yang, but I believe there are some other possibilities we should investigate further. The origin of CP violation remains mysterious in spite of our effort over decades. Maybe, it is because our point of view in symmetry and particle is not quite right. Especially, the approximation we treat a meson as a point particle should be investigated rigorously. In my paper, it is argued that the origin of CP violation is a meson being a composite not a point particle and new CP violation theory based on EDMs is suggested for the experimental test. It will be appreciated if you can make some comments on it. Thanks, J.C. Yoon

There have been others who tried to attribute the observed effects in K-decay to compositeness but I convinced them that their analysis was flawed. I do not have time right now to go through your arguments in detail, but your conclusion is not correct. Sincerely, Mary K.

If you don't mind, I have some questions to ask. Please forgive me for bothering you and answer these questions. [quote="On Tuesday, January 13, 2004 4:00 PM, Mary K Gaillard"] The analysis of Wu and Yang is independent of whether or not particles are fundamental or composite.[/quote] 1. One of the critical assumption they made is what goes on in neutrino is valid in meson since they are considered as a fundamental particle or approximated so. However, in meson, there are some critical decays that we cannot explain with such assumption and the idea of quark is required. Has your statement been rigorously verified in theory or in experiment with the consideration of the idea of quark? 2. In my paper, it is criticized that the helicity is not the kind of intrinsic property that determines the particle identity especially when neutrino is massive. Do you think the left-handed neutrino is different particle from the right-handed neutrino and the analysis of Wu and Yang still holds even if neutrino is not massless? [quote="Mary K Gaillard"] There have been others who tried to attribute the observed effects in K-decay to compositeness but I convinced them that their analysis was flawed. I do not have time right now to go through your arguments in detail, but your conclusion is not correct.[/quote] 3. I am a little bit puzzled that you think my conclusion is wrong judging by the similar argument not going through mine. Were their analysis as same as mine? Could you refer to the references that I can consult with? Do you think every argument in my paper fails? 4. What is your intuition on the time-dependent charge asymmetry of $\overline{K}^{0}$? Will it be just like that of $K^{0}$ or different? I would appreciate your reply. Thanks, J.C. Yoon
