Top Quark Physics: a Perspective to 2020
abstract
The discovery of the top quark nearly 20 years ago set the beginning of a comprehensive study of its properties and dynamics both at the Tevatron collider in the USA, and more recently at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. The decay of the top as a free quark, but particularly its large mass of ~173 GeV/c2 make it still today a special case amongst the fundamental particles. Many theoretical extensions of the standard model predict first and foremost modifications to the top quark production rates and its boson couplings. I will introduce the basic phenomenology of top quarks, the experimental challenges, and the latest results for the main observables from the ATLAS and CDF experiments. I will also discuss a few of the measurements which will be particularly relevant for the upcoming Run II of the LHC.
