Two independent analyses ■ Two analyses by two teams with their own analysis policy and event selection methods Comparison of good K 3 event e.g. : events 1 events A k 1264 k A1 918 k 909 k ■ Combination of the two analyses by resorting of events to 6 data sets — A1 A2 A1 A2 A1 A2 — 22 11 Merits of two analysis method Cross check of data quality by A 0, decay plane rotation r and z and P T Comparison of sensitivity by normal asymmetry A N and Check of data quality in e.g. A1 by comparing A1 A2 and A1 A2-bar Estimate of systematic error by comparing of A1 A 2 from A1 and A2 Improvement of statistical error

Data quality check Null asymmetry check A 0 =[(N cw /N ccw ) total -1]/2 Sensitivity check A N =(A left - A right )/2 A left = [(N cw /N ccw ) left -1]/2 A right = [(N cw /N ccw ) right -1]/2 total = fwd + bwd 6 data sets for each period Open circles are 2 events and dots are 1 events. Null asymmetry is canceled by double ratio ( fwd-bwd ).

15
Summary ■ Transverse muon polarization in K + → 0 + decay is a good probe of CP violation beyond the standard model. ■ The final result of the KEK-E246 experiment showed no evidence for T violation with Im = ± (stat) ± (syst), or |Im | <0.016 (90% C.L. ). ■ This limit constrains the parameters of some non-standard CP violation models with high sensitivity. ■ We are going to propose a next generation P T experiment at the high intensity accelerator J-PARC.
