Testing the standard model with top quarks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The top quark, by far the most massive known fermion, provides a unique laboratory in which to study phyiscs at the electroweak scale. I report on recent top quark measurements from the CDF and DØ experiments at the Fermilab Tevatron pp̄ collider, including the first observation of single top quark production, measurement of the top quark mass, the tt̄ production rate, and several searches for new physics in the properties of the top quark, and in its production and decay.
