To the top and beyond: top quarks as a probe of new interactions at the LHC — •Katharina Behr — DESY
As the heaviest known elementary particle with a close to unity Yukawa coupling to the Higgs field, the top quark plays a special role in the Standard Model and in searches for new particles and interactions, which are often predicted to couple preferentially to the third quark generation. Searches targeting the complex detector signatures of single or multiple top quarks aim, for example, to shed light on dark matter or probe the existence of additional Higgs bosons.
I will review the strategies of searches involving top quarks or hypothetical top partner on the latest LHC data from proton-proton collisions at √s=13 TeV, highlighting new analysis and reconstruction techniques.
