Abstract:
I provide an analysis of theoretical and phenomenological searches for local parity violation in heavy-ion collisions at RHIC and the LHC. I discuss the relevant correlation functions used for the measurements and argue that the present experimental evidence for the local parity violation is rather ambiguous.
