Top-Quark Physics at High-Energy CLIC Operation
August 02, 2019
The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a mature option for a future electron-positron collider operating at center-of-mass energies of up to 3 TeV. CLIC will be built and operated in a staged approach with three center-of-mass energy stages currently assumed to be 380 GeV, 1.5 TeV and 3 TeV. This talk discusses the prospects for top-quark physics at the two TeV-scale CLIC energy stages based on benchmark analyses using full detector simulations. New studies of top-quark pair production at high-energy CLIC operation make use of jet-substructure techniques originally developed for the LHC. Forward-backward and polarization asymmetries, as well as so-called
optimal observables, are studied. The top Yukawa coupling and the CP properties in the ttH coupling are best probed in 1.5 TeV collisions. CLIC operation at 3 TeV also enables the study of top-quark pair production through Vector Boson Fusion. The BSM sensitivity provided by the top physics program at CLIC is illustrated using Effective Field Theory (EFT).

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
