  • An inclusive search for same-sign top-quark pair production in pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV is performed using a data sample recorded with the CMS detector in 2010, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35 pb−1. This analysis is motivated by recent studies of pp → tt reporting mass-dependent forward-backward asymmetries larger than expected from the standard model. These asymmetries could be due to Flavor Changing Neutral Currents (FCNC) in the top sector induced by t-channel exchange of… CONTINUE READING
