Spin analyzing power for polarized top decays with jets

We perform perturbative QCD factorization of infrared radiations associated with an energetic b quark from a polarized top quark decay, taking the semi-leptonic channel as an example. The resultant

Energy profile of b-jet for boosted top quarks

We analyse the semileptonic decay of a polarised top-quark with a large veloc- ity based on the perturbative QCD factorisation framework. Thanks to the factorisation and the spin decomposition, the

Polarized top quarks from new physics: Signals and observables

Top quarks may be produced in large numbers in association with new physics at the LHC. The polarization of these top quarks probes the chiral structure of the new physics. We discuss several

NNLO QCD corrections to leptonic observables in top-quark pair production and decay

We calculate a comprehensive set of spin correlations and differential distributions in top-quark pair production and decay to dilepton final states. Our calculation is performed in the Narrow Width

Lepton distribution as a probe of new physics in production and decay of the t quark and its polarization

We investigate the possibility of studying new physics in various processes of t-quark production using kinematical distributions of the secondary lepton coming from the decay of t quarks. We show

Better Hadronic Top Quark Polarimetry

Observables sensitive to top quark polarization are important for characterizing or even discovering new physics. The most powerful spin analyzer in top decay is the down-type fermion from the W,

Hadronic top-quark pair-production with one jet and parton showering

We present a calculation of heavy-flavor production in hadronic collisions in association with one jet matched to parton shower Monte Carlo programs at next-to-leading order in perturbative QCD.



Top-quark spin correlations at hadron colliders: predictions at next-to-leading order QCD.

This Letter presents for the reactions pp, pp-->tt+X-->l+l'-+X the first calculation of the dilepton angular distribution at next-to-leading order in the QCD coupling, keeping the full dependence on the spins of the intermediate tt state.

One-loop QCD mass effects in the production of polarized bottom and top quarks

AbstractThe analytic expressions for the production cross sections of polarized bottom and top quarks ine*e− annihilation are explicitly derived at the one-loop order of strong interactions.

Using the top quark for testing standard-model polarization and CP predictions.

How to test the standard-model QCD predictions for the transverse polarization of a top quark produced at the Fermilab Tevatron, Superconducting Super Collider, CERN Large Hadron Collider, and the Next Linear Collider is shown.
