Studies of symmetry violations have certainly a potential to find the so desperately sought for physics beyond the Standard Model. Though the subjects discussed use methods of nuclear and particle physics, the basic symmetries are of more general interest, extending into the fields of atomic and molecular physics, modern cosmology, quantum chemistry, biology, and even general education.
