    • Abstract


      Inequality of the rates for K0 → π+e υ and K0 → πe+ν transitions, reported by CPLEAR, and an asymmetry in the distribution of the dihedral angle between the π+π and e+e planes in KL → π+πe+e decays, found by KTeV, have been announced as demonstrations of T-noninvariance. These results are critically interpreted and compared as proofs of the failure of reciprocity.
