Top Quark Properties at the TeVatron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Discovered in 1995 by CDF and D0 at the Fermilab Tevatron collider, the top quark remains interesting to test the Standard Model. Having collected more than 7 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity with both experiments until today, several top quark properties have been measured with increasing precision, while other properties have been investigated for the first time. In this article recent measurements of top quark properties from CDF and D0 are presented, using between 1 fb{sup -1} and 4.8 fb{sup -1} of data. In particular, the measurement of the top quark mass, the top quark width, the top antitop mass ... continued below

In this article recent measurements of top quark properties from CDF and D0 are presented, using between 1 fb{sup -1} and 4.8 fb{sup -1} of data. In particular, the measurement of the top quark mass, the top quark width, the top antitop mass difference, a check of the electric charge of the top quark, measurements of the top antitop quark spin correlation and W helicity as well as a search for charged Higgs bosons are discussed.
