Because of the top quark’s very large mass, about 175 GeV, it now provides the best window into flavor physics. Thus, pair production of top quarks at the Fermilab Tevatron collider is the best probe of this physics until the CERN Large Hadron collider (LH) turns on in the next century. I discuss aspects of the mass and angular distributions that can be measured in tt¯ production with the coming large data samples from the Tevatron and even larger ones from the LHC.

Golosov, D. I.; Ruckenstein, A. E. (SPRINGER/PLENUM PUBLISHERS, 1998-08-01)We re-examine the calculation of the transverse spin-diffusion coefficient in a dilute degenerate spin-polarized Fermi gas, for the case of s-wave scattering. The special feature of this limit is that the dependence of the ...
