Mixing:D0 mixing slightly different from K0 and B0(s) mixing only up type quark system that can mixD0 mixing only recently observed experimentally (2007 onwards)Beyond Standard Model (BSM) effects may enhance mixing(Accurate) SM and BSM theoretical calculations/predictions are difficult and show a broad range of estimates why?: D-mesons are too light to be treated as heavy and too heavy to be treated as light!

CP violation:Predicted to be negligible in the SM large effects would be evidence for New Physics Experimental evidence for CP violation with D mesons not yet clear(CPV in Kaons got a Nobel prize, CPV in B got a Nobel prize.)Why study mixing and CP violation in the D sector?Chris Parkes#Mixing in neutral D mesonsBaBar and Belle find first evidence for D0 mixingWell established by combining multiple channels
