Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We show that the exponential parametrization of the CKM matrix allows to establish exact relations between the Euler weak rotation angles and the entries of the CKM generating matrix, which has already been shown to include the hierarchy features of the Wolfenstein parametrization. The analysis includes CP-violating effects and its usefulness to treat the experimental data is also proved.
