Top Quark Production and Decay at the Tevatron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Recent measurements of the top quark production cross section and decay properties by the CDF and D0 experiments are described. The cross section has been measured in dilepton, lepton plus jets, and all-hadronic final states, and a measurement of BR(t {yields} Wb)/BR(t {yields} Wq), where q is any quark, has been performed. The results, though statistics-limited, are consistent with each other and with theoretical predictions.
