Transverse Polarization of Top Quarks Produced in e + e −-Annihilation at O ( α s )

We present the results of an O(αs) calculation of the transverse polarization of top quarks produced in e+e−-annihilation. In a first step we determine the transverse polarization of the top with regard to the hadron plane spanned by the (q, q, g) system. We then rotate the transverse components of the polarization to the lepton plane spanned by the (q, e… CONTINUE READING
