    1616of the Standard Model (violated by weak interactions) it should be included. The problem is that one would then expect, from naturalness argument
    1717to have $\theta$ of order one. Experimental bounds coming mainly from the limits on the neutron electric dipole moment gives
    18 %$||\theta||<10^{-10}$. This gives the so-called "strong CP problem". The Peccei-Quinn mechanism ([http://prola.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v38/i25/p1440_1 Phys.Rev.Lett. 38 (1977), 1440]) is a famous attempt to solve this problem by introducing a dynamical field, which gives rise to the axion. See the PDG section on [http://pdg.lbl.gov/2008/reviews/axion_s029.pdf axion searches] for  an up-to-date report on axion searches.
