Abstract

We study the capability of a 2 TeV pp̄ collider with an integrated luminosity of 10 fb-1 to study CP violation in the processes pp̄ → W± γ and pp̄ → Zγ. We assume the existence of new CP violating interactions beyond the standard model which we describe with an effective Lagrangian. We find that the study of CP-odd observables would allow this machine to place bounds on CP violating anomalous couplings similar to the bounds that the same machine can place on CP conserving anomalous couplings. For example it could place the bound |κ̃γ| < 0.1 at the 95% confidence level.
