Description

The D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron proton-antiproton collider has recored almost 10 fb-1 of integrated luminosity at 1.96 TeV. I will present recent precision measurements of various parameters of the top quark sector, which are using a large fraction of this well-understood dataset. In particular, I will highlight the measurement of the forward-backward strong colour charge asymmetry, the world's most precise measurement of the mass of the top quark in dilepton final states, a Tevatron-wide combination of the top quark mass, a novel search for violation of invariance under Lorentz transformations, the first Tevatron-wide combination of the helicity measurements of the W boson in decays of top pairs, the extraction of anomalous couplings, and other measurements.
