1 Top physics at the Olaf Behnke (DESY) LHeC workshop 20 th january Single top production Top pair production tt t

2 2 -Determine V tb from cross section -Check for anomalous production -Depending on (sensitive to) effective b-quark density in proton 5-flavour scheme

3 3 -Determine V tb from cross section -Check for anomalous production -Depending on (sensitive to) effective b-quark density in proton 5-flavour scheme Can be determined in situ from F2bb measurements at LHeC !

4 4 Collider scenario: 7 TeV p on 60 GeV electrons So far only on parton level Standard madgraph cards (e.g. CTEQ6L1) 5-flavour scheme generate e- p > ve t~ Madgraph parameters used throughout this talk

5 5 generate e- p > ve t~ Obtained total LO Cross Section: 1.8 pb Check in the following slides the decay kinematics ( is it within the LHeC detector?)

11 11 s-channelt-channeltW-channel LHC LHeC (pb) (NNLO Kidonakis) tt prod.  (pb) (LO Madgraph) ~0.01 in DIS  Expected #events for 1000 fb M 2900 ~10000

12 12 s-channelt-channeltW-channel LHC LHeC (pb) (NNLO Kidonakis) tt prod.  (pb) (LO Madgraph) ~0.01 in DIS  Expected #events for 1000 fb M 2900 ~10000 Available for precise V tb determination

13 13 Georgio Chiarelli, arXiv:  Further detector level studies are needed to assess the LHeC potential for V tb (Acceptance, Backgrounds from W production etc.)

14 Extremely suppressed in SM Potential window to BSM 14 Study by G. Brandt ( LHeC 2008 workshop, Divonne) Using anotop MC with K ut  =0.01:  Expect for 7 TeV x 70 GeV LHeC with 1000 fb FCNC top events But large backgrounds from SM W and CC single top Better prospects at LHeC-based  p collider mode, see LHeC CDR, p.205

15 Production studies: 15 K ugt /  < TeV -1 K cgt /  < TeV -1 ATLAS 2.05 fb -1 CERN-PH-EP Mostly decay studies: exploit BR(t  qZ) ~ (K tqZ ) 2 Kerim Suruliz Top 2013 workshop: Could LHeC with ~2M top quarks make sensitive decay studies? t  qZ not enough statistics, but perhaps t  q  (to be checked)

16 16 -Sensitive to the proton gluon density at high x Madgraph LO Cross Section: 9.9 fb Expect more from photoproduction (not simulated yet)

17 17 Forward to very forward production

18 18 With L=1000 fb -1 expect some tens of events produced at high x >0.5 Corresponds to ~1500 fb -1

19 19 Total kinematic acceptance ~50%, high x somewhat suppressed t-> bl, t~-> bl pt(b)>10 GeV, pt(l)>10 GeV y(b)<3.0 y(l)<3.0 Corresponds to higher L

20 Study top production for the first time at an ep collider  is a unique test of the SM Single Top production in charged currents: Expect precision measurement of V tb Top Pair production in DIS and photoproduction: clean test of proton gluon density at high x (but suffers from rather low statistic) In general: sensitive tests of new physics through anomalous production channels/cross sections and decays Further studies at detector level needed (including background simulation) for detailed assessment of physics potential. 20
