It is shown that the exponential parametrization allows the derivation of the elements of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix using a single parameter. The Wolfenstein form is recovered as a particular case of the exponential representation. It is also shown that the method can be straight-forwardly extended to arbitrary quark generations. © 1994, Società Italiana di Fisica. All rights reserved.
