Black hole formation (BHF) in hadron collisions is a subject of great current interest. If BHF occurs, we might expect large violations of baryon number, charge conjugation (C), parity (P), strangeness, isospin, etc., in such interactions. C and P have not been well tested in hadronic interactions. I propose new tests of C and P that can be adapted to a variety of BHF scenarios. Large effects, such as ∼10% longitudinal polarizations of outgoing particles, might be expected. These tests may provide more sensitive searches for BHF, or other new physics, at existing colliders. © 2003 American Institute of Physic
