Abstract Large {ital CP}-violation effects can occur for time-evolved {ital B}{sup 0} decays into definite {ital CP} eigenstates. The rates into these unique {ital CP} eigenmodes are tiny. This article advocates the use of many additional modes that are not {ital CP} eigenstates because of mixtures of angular momenta. Naively, for those modes a partial and sometimes large cancellation of the {ital CP} asymmetry occurs. However, a detailed study of their angular correlations enables the projection onto definite {ital CP} eigenstates, and thus recovers the full {ital CP} asymmetry.
