ABSTRACT
A review of the top quark rare decay modes t → cV[sub i] and t → cV[sub i]V[sub j] (V[sub i] = γ, Z, g) is presented within the framework of the Standard Model (SM) and some of its extensions. Since these decays are induced by flavor changing neutral current interactions (FCNC), they constitute a strong test for the SM. We found that these transitions open up the possibility of looking for signals from new physics.

    In this paper we summarize the status of Top Quark Physics and of searches for the Standard Model Higgs at the Tevatron. Results from both the CDF and DO experiments are discussed and the prospects for the upcoming Run 2, in the year 2001, are outlined. Much work has been performed on these...

    The Standard Model is highly successful in describing the interactions of leptons and quarks. There are, however, rare processes that involve higher order effects in electroweak interactions. One specific class of processes is the penguin-like diagram. Such class of diagrams involves the neutral...

    While the top quark was discovered in 1995 at the Fermilab Tevatron, a decade later we still have very little information about the top. As the heaviest particle yet discovered, the top quark is interesting in and of itself, but some speculate that it may play a special role in physics beyond...

    We revisit the issue of the quark masses and mixing angles in the framework of large extra dimension. We consider three identical standard model families resulting from higher-dimensional fields localized on different branes embedded in a large extra dimension. Furthermore we use a decaying...

    Interpretation of D-meson decay-dynamics has revealed itself to be strongly dependent on our understanding of the light-meson sector. The interplay becomes particularly evident in Dalitz plot analyses to study physics within and beyond the Standard Model. Experience and results from FOCUS are...

    The flavor changing neutral top quark decay t→cX is computed, where X is a neutral standard model particle, in an extended model with a single extra dimension. The cases for the photon, X=γ, and a standard model Higgs boson, X=H, are analyzed in detail in a non-linear Rξ gauge. We...

    We study the inclusion of non-standard soft-breaking terms in the minimal SUSY extension of the SM, considering it as a model of weak-scale SUSY. These terms modify the higgs-sfermion interaction and the sfermion mass matrices, which can induce new sources of flavour violation. Bounds on the new...
