ATLAS Experiment studies the dynamics of very high-momentum top quarks

The top quark, the heaviest known fundamental particle, plays a unique role in high-energy physics. Studies of its properties have opened new opportunities for furthering our knowledge of the Standard Model. In a new paper submitted to Physical Review D, the ATLAS collaboration at CERN presents a comprehensive measurement of high-momentum top-quark pair production at 13 TeV.
