Effective-field-theory approach to top-quark production and decay

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We discuss new physics in top-quark interactions, using an effective-field-theory approach. We consider top-quark decay, single top production, and top-quark pair production. We identify 15 dimension-six operators that contribute to these processes, and we compute the deviation from the standard model induced by these operators. The results provide a systematic way of searching for (or obtaining bounds on) physics beyond the standard model.
