Description

The LHC will produce large numbers of top anti-top quark pairs providing an excellent opportunity to study in detail the properties of the top-quark. We discuss the use of T-odd correlations to extract information on the CP violating couplings of the top-quark at the LHC. We illustrate our discussion with two examples: CP violating anomalous top quark couplings; and CP violation in extended Higgs sectors, including color octets.
