Search for Lorentz violation in top quark pair production and decay

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We present a summary of the first search for Lorentz violation in the top quark sector. This study examined the tt production and decay process using data collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. In this process, violation of Lorentz invariance would manifest as a periodic variation in the rate at which tt events occur. This variation was quantified using the Standard-Model Extension framework, and the first limits were set on some of the coefficients (cQ)μν33 and (cU)μν33 parametrizing Lorentz violation in the top quark sector.
