Nuclei as Laboratories: Nuclear Tests of Fundamental Symmetries
Nuclei continue to provide unique opportunities for studying
the fundamental symmetries of the Standard Model and looking for those
beyond it. In this talk, I discuss several areas in which nuclei will
continue to serve as important "laboratories" for carrying out these
tests. In particular, I consider tests of time-reversal invariance and
what they may teach us about the origin of baryonic matter;
parity-invariance and what new insights they may provide about weak
interactions of quarks; and lepton number conservation and what such
tests may teach us about the properties of neutrinos as well as the
flavor structure of the "new" Standard Model.
