An Open Quantum System Approach to the B-Mesons System

2003 International Journal of Theoretical Physics  
In this talk we consider a non standard evolution for the neutral B-mesons system, namely, an evolution in the open quantum systems framework. Such approach is justified by the very high sensitivity of experiments studying CP-violating phenomena in the B-mesons sector, very near to the one required to test some possible scenarios induced by quantum gravity at the Planck scale, whose effects at low energy can be described by a heat bath. We adopt a phenomenological point of view, introducing six
