Review of new physics effects in \(t\bar{t}\) production

Regular Article - Theoretical Physics
Part of the following topical collections:
  1. Top and flavour physics in the LHC era

Abstract

Both CDF and DØ report a forward–backward asymmetry in \(t\bar{t}\) production that is above the standard model prediction. We review new physics models that can give a large forward backward asymmetry in \(t\bar{t}\) production at the Tevatron and the constraints these models face from searches for dijet resonances and contact interactions, from flavor physics and the \(t\bar{t}\) cross section. Expected signals at the LHC are also reviewed.
