Can LHC observe an anomaly in ttZ production?

F. Richard 1
LAL - Laboratoire de l'Accélérateur Linéaire
Abstract : The cross section for production at the 7 TeV LHC has been measured. For the first time it therefore becomes possible to measure Z couplings to top quarks. Interpreting the notorious LEP1 anomaly on Z couplings to b quarks in terms of an extra-dimension model, one expects an excess, as large as a factor 2, on the rate which may already become significant with the LHC at 8 TeV data. Other schemes are reviewed which also predict deviations of couplings. The size of the effect and a dramatic increase of the top quarks with the right chirality should confirm our interpretation of the underlying mechanism. Complementary signals observable at LHC are also briefly reviewed.
