I will present a brief review of the role of the top and bottom quarks in an exhaustive characterization of the Standard Model and its possible extensions. The talk will explore the many connections between the top and Higgs/EW sectors and will highlight the qualitatively new information that can be obtained with new installations. I discuss existing work and indicate a few areas where further...
One of the main goals of the future $e^+e^-$ colliders is to measure the top-quark mass and width in a scan of the pair production threshold. Yet, the shape of the threshold cross section depends also on other model parameters as the top Yukawa coupling and the strong coupling constant. We study the expected precision of the top-quark mass determination from the threshold scan at CLIC, ILC...
We introduce a new data format tailored to provide an easy and efficient entry into projections for e+e- colliders, called miniDST. The miniDST comprises isolated electron, muon, tau and photon candidates, jets with b- and c-tagging information, particle flow objects and MC truth information as well as event shape variables.
It is based on LCIO and is directly readable in root.
A robust knowledge of the proton subnuclear structure is a crucial input at the LHC. The uncertainty on the Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) often represents a limiting factor in the accuracy of theoretical predictions at hadron colliders and this will be even more crucial in the High Luminosity run. I will give an overview of the new exciting challenges that the precision frontier is...
With the recent approval of CD-0 for the Electron-Ion Collider and its siting at Brookhaven National Lab, the EIC program enjoys strong forward momentum. As a community, we are now tasked with understanding the phenomenological implications of the future EIC program, which will extend to many corners of particle physics, and planning accordingly to enhance the scientific impact. In this talk,...
We discuss about the possibility of constraining heavy-flavor parton distribution functions (PDFs) in the proton, in particular the top and bottom PDFs. We discuss about heavy-flavor initiated processes and their potential impact in future global PDF analyses.
