Since CPT theorem was introduced in the 20th century, it has been one of the most important ongoing projects in particle physics. CPT theorem helps to indicate if there are discrete symmetries in relativistic quantum mechanics, the answer to this question is ambiguous. This paper will mainly explain the answers by the timeline and pointed out the misnomers and some missing points. And we (me and my advisor) claim the answer is there are discrete symmetries in relativistic quantum mechanics to 100%. The most recent experiment shows the violation of CPT theorem is only 2x10^-10.
