Framing energetic top-quark pair production at the LHC

Abstract:

Top-quark pair production is central to many facets of LHC physics. At leading order, the top and anti-top are produced in a back-to-back topology, however this topology accounts only for a minority of the events with TeV-scale momentum transfer that contain a tt¯ pair. The remaining events instead involve the splitting of an initial or final-state gluon to tt¯. We provide simple quantitative arguments that explain why this is the case, and examine the interplay between different topologies a...
