  1. 1. Top quarks at the Tevatron : Measurements of the top quark production and decay with the D0 experiment

    Author : Jonas Strandberg; Barbro Åsman; Michael Albrow; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; elementary particle physics; D0; Tevatron; top quark; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents two measurements of the top quark using 230 pb-1 of data taken with the D0 detector at the Tevatron accelerator. The first measurement determines the top pair production cross section at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV in proton-antiproton collisions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Top Quark Pair Production in ATLAS

    Author : Karl Gellerstedt; Jörgen Sjölin; Kerstin Jon-And; Cecilia Gerber; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; particle physics; top quark; LHC; ATLAS; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the international particle physics laboratory CERN in Switzerland is currently the most powerful particle accelerator on earth. This thesis presents analyses of proton-proton collisions at the energy √s = 7 TeV, recorded by ATLAS, one of the detectors at the LHC. READ MORE

  3. 3. First Determination of the Electric Charge of the Top Quark and Studies of the Top Quark Pair Background to New Physics
