More information:

The Standard Model of Particle Physics is a very successful model to describe all current observations in modern particle physics. However, we also know that the Standard Model cannot be the final answer. An orthogonal approach to the search for New Physics using events with large momentum is offered by precision studies looking for new physics in quantum loops.  The decay of hadrons containing b-quarks offers an ideal laboratory for such precision studies. E.g. theory predicts a value almost consistent with zero for the measurement of the time dependent decay of BS. A significant deviation from zero would be a clear indication for physics beyond the Standard Model, hidden in quantum loops.
Besides the search for new Physics showing up in quantum loops the analysis of B-hadron decays allow detailed studies of CP-violation. This CP-violation is a necessary ingredient for the large asymmetry between matter and antimatter observed in the universe. It turns out that the currently observed CP-violation is consistent within the Standard Model but far from being enough to explain the large matter-antimatter asymmetry observed. CP-violation studies using hadronic B-decays offer the possibility to search for new CP-violating effects.
