Thinking About Top: Looking Outside The Standard Model
- Author(s): Simmons, Elizabeth H
- et al.
The top quark is by far the heaviest known fermion . In consequence, experiment is just beginning to explore its properties, and some of them may yet prove to be distinctly non-standard. The very size of the top quark's mass even hints at the possibility of a special role for top in electroweak symmetry breaking. This talk examines the top quark in the context of physics beyond the standard model, and discusses how Run II can help elucidate the true nature of top.
