Extracting the Top-Quark Width from Nonresonant Production
PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS
Based on: 1903.10519
Abstract: In the context of the standard model of particle physics, the relationship between the top-quark mass and width has been precisely calculated. However, the uncertainty from current direct measurements of the width is nearly 50%. In this paper, a new approach for directly measuring the top-quark width using events away from the resonance peak is presented. The authors, by recasting a recent ATLAS differential cross section measurement, provide the most precise direct measurement of the width.
