WHAT DOES K-MESON MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Kaon

In particle physics, a kaon /ˈkeɪ.ɑːn/, also called a K meson and denoted K, is any of a group of three mesons distinguished by a quantum number called strangeness. In the quark model they are understood to be bound states of a strange quark and an up or down antiquark. Kaons have proved to be a copious source of information on the nature of fundamental interactions since their discovery in cosmic rays in 1947. They were essential in establishing the foundations of the Standard Model of particle physics, such as the quark model of hadrons and the theory of quark mixing. Kaons have played a distinguished role in our understanding of fundamental conservation laws: CP violation, a phenomenon generating the observed matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe, was discovered in the kaon system in 1964. Moreover, direct CP violation was also discovered in the kaon decays in the early 2000s.

The neutral K meson is built out of a d-quark (charge -1/3) and a strange antiquark, which has antistrangeness (and charge + 1/3). It is globally neutral but different from its antiparticle which is built out of an anti d-quark and a strange quark.
