Description

The parity of pions will be discussed within the framework of the Generation Model [1] of particle physics and it will be shown that both the 1954 determination [2] of the parity of the charged pions and the 2008 determination [3] of the parity of the neutral pion are compatible with the mixed-parity nature of the pions predicted by a recent composite Generation Model [4]. The development of the Generation Model as an alternative to the Standard Model of particle physics will be discussed. It will be demonstrated how the Generation Model leads to a unified classification of leptons and quarks and how this makes feasible a composite model of the fundamental particles of the Standard Model. In particular it will be shown that the 1964 CP violating experiment of Christenson et al. [5] may be understood without CP violation. [1] B.A. Robson, Int. J. Mod. Phys. E 11 (2002) 555; Int. J.
