CP Violation, B Mesons, and New Physics

David London

In this talk, I review the main methods for measuring CP violation in the B system. I then present the principal results, concentrating particularly on the several discrepancies with the predictions of the standard model. Although these disagreements are mostly not statistically significant, they are intriguing since they are all in b -> s transitions. Furthermore, taken together, their significance increases. Finally, I discuss several projects I have recently been involved in, all related to this hint of new physics.
