Marcel Vos (CERN) "Prospects for Top Physics at the LHC and Beyond"

June 22, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider are characterizing the top quark and its interactions to unexpected precision. The combination of direct searches for new particles and indirect constraints from precision measurements provides powerful limits on extensions of the Standard Model. I start the seminar with a brief overview of top physics today and of the prospects for precision top physics of future LHC runs. This sets a high bar for future colliders that are to continue the programme initiated by Tevatron and LHC. In the second half of the seminar I discuss the potential of the future facilities envisaged in Asia and Europe. Powerful electron-positron machines have exquisite potential for key measurements such as the top quark mass and electro-weak couplings. Hadron colliders with a center-of-mass energy that significantly exceeds that of the LHC can probe the QCD interactions of the top quark an order of magnitude deeper and can provide a precise measurement of the top Yukawa coupling.
