### CKM and New Physics II

From Soni's table below we see that the clean penguin estimates suggest a value less than the $0.66$ of current measurement, which is even further from the incorrect QCD prediction. Taking this constraint seriously, we are led to a value for $\textrm{sin} 2 \beta$ that is very close to the $0.649$ predicted by triality in quantum information.

4. Note that if we take the experimental error bars seriously, the best guess is $0.645$. It would be interesting to use this as a constraint on the CKM parameters that we started with.
