Title: Latest News on Top Quark Physics

Refreshments available at 1:30 pm.

Date: Tue, 13 Feb 2018, 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm
Type: Seminar
Location: 1400 BPS Bldg.

The talk will present latest results on top quark physics at CMS employing proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of up to 36/fb at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. New results from other experiments and center of mass energies will also be discussed. Latest results include inclusive and differential cross section measurements, top quark property measurements, as well as measurements of the cross section for associate production of W, Z and Higgs bosons in top quark pair production. With already more than 30 million of top quark pairs produced in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV at the CMS experiment so far, the Run 2 of the LHC has unlimited potential to explore the top quark sector. My talk will highlight the current status of top quark physics and discuss implications for the standard model, as well as an outlook.
