The fifth of the six known types of quark, the b quark is commonly referred to as the beauty or bottom quark. The two names reflect two different schemes for the naming of the quarks, both of which have been adopted by the High Energy Physics community. Current interest in the b quark centers on the prediction that its decays should prominently exhibit the phenomeneon known as CP violation. For a non-technical personal reminiscence on the discovery of the b quark, see "How We Found the b Quark."
