In the Standard Model the coupling of the top quark to a vector boson
is predicted via the weak interaction. New physics beyond the Standard Model
can modify the $t\bar{t}V$ cross-section. As an example several of the operators
introduced by effective field theory are sensitive to the $t\bar{t}Z$ and $t\bar{t}W$
production cross-sections. Multiple analysis channels with 2, 3 or 4 lepton
final-states have been considered in the latest $t\bar{t}V$ cross section measurement
by the ATLAS experiment located at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The dominant backgrounds in the analysis are
mis-reconstructed leptons and the diboson process, depending on the analysis
channel. A two-dimensional fit of the $t\bar{t}W$ and $t\bar{t}Z$ cross-section is performed
to interpret possible deviations from the Standard Model.
