    • Abstract


      The general features of parity nonconservation (PNC) in atoms arising from neutral weak currents and the nuclear anapole moment are discussed. The theoretical approaches used to calculate PNC observables are briefly mentioned. A brief review of the present status of atomic PNC is presented and its potential as a probe of physics beyond the standard model is highlighted.
