Bounds on new physics from electric dipole moments

Abstract: 

Electric dipole moments are extremely sensitive probes for
additional sources of CP violation in new physics models. The
multi-scale problem of relating the high precision measurements
with neutrons, atoms and molecules to fundamental parameters
can be approached model-independently to a large extent;
however, care must be taken to include the uncertainties from
especially nuclear and QCD calculations properly. The resulting
bounds on fundamental parameters are illustrated in the context
of Two-Higgs-Doublet models.
