Mirror particles and mirror matter: 50 years of speculation and searc


Russian Federation State Scientific Center A.I. Alikhanov Institute ofTheoretical and Experimental Physics, ul. Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya 25, Moscow, 117259, Russian Federation

This review describes the history of the discovery of the violation of the spatial parity P, the charge conjugation parity , and the combined parity CP. The hypothesis of the existence of mirror particles was intended by its authors to restore the symmetry between left and right. The review presents the emergence and evolution of the concepts of ’mirror particles’ and ’mirror matter’ and can serve as  concise travel guide to ’mirror land.’ An important part of the review is the list of about 200 references with their titles.
