Abstract

We point out that the decay mode KL0e+e- is predominantly CP violating in the standard model and is expected to occur with a branching ratio of several parts in 1012. The decay should be sensitive to direct S=1 CP violation. Analysis of the Dalitz plot may enable the CP-violating nature of the process to be confirmed.
