DESCRIPTION:One of the most fundamental symmetries in physics is CPT invar
iance. This series of lectures will review the CPT theorem with particular
attention to the ingredients needed for the proof. Two versions of the pr
oof\, the original Lagrangian-based approach as well as the axiomatic appr
oach\, will be sketched and the close connection to Lorentz symmetry will
be highlighted. The presentation of the proofs will be followed by a discu
ssion of the major physical implications that arise from CPT invariance\,
in particular the equality in magnitude of various physical properties of
a particle and its antiparticle. Motivated by recent theoretical and exper
imental interest in CPT tests\, various approaches to the violation of CPT
invariance will be mentioned\, and it is outlined how they evade the CPT
theorem. Examples of CPT-violation searches with particular focus on the S
tandard-Model Extension test framework will be delineated. An attempt will
be made to keep this lecture series self-contained and at a level suitabl
e for a broad audience by excising as many technical aspects as possible.\
