Particle Physics Seminar

"Recent Top Quark Results from ATLAS"

Presented by Jacob Searcy, University of Oregon

Thursday, June 14, 2012, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

As the most massive fundamental particle ever observed, the top quark may play a key role in probing physics beyond the standard model. Several theories predict anomalous tt production or the existence of rare decays
such as t ! H+b. In 2011 ATLAS collected 5.25 fb−1 of data from ps = 7 TeV p − p collisions and recorded an unprecedented number of tt events. This talk will summarize the most recent results from the ATLAS
Collaboration on the top quark’s production and decay.
