25 Years with the Top Quark


The top quark was rst observed in 1995 in the CDF and D0 experiments at the Fermilab \(p\bar{p}\) Tevatron collider. In the intervening 25 years much has been learned about this heaviest of all known fundamental particles. Its properties thus far conform to the expectations of the standard model but its large mass is suggestive that its study is an ideal place for searches for new physics outside the current paradigm.
