Charm (quantum number)

charm quantum number n, charm quantum number chart
Charm symbol C is a flavour quantum number representing the difference between the number of charm quarks
c
and charm antiquarks
c
that are present in a particle:

C = n c − n c ¯   }-n_} }\ }

By convention, the sign of flavour quantum numbers agree with the sign of the electric charge carried by the quark of corresponding flavour The charm quark, which carries an electric charge Q of +​2⁄3, therefore carries a charm of +1 The charm antiquarks have the opposite charge Q = −​2⁄3, and flavour quantum numbers C = −1

As with any flavour-related quantum numbers, charm is preserved under strong and electromagnetic interaction, but not under weak interaction see CKM matrix For first-order weak decays, that is processes involving only one quark decay, charm can only vary by 1 ΔC= ±1,0 Since first-order processes are more common than second-order processes involving two quark decays, this can be used as an approximate "selection rule" for weak decays
