Description

Measurements of the single top quark production cross sections in proton proton collisions with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider are presented. Measurements of single topquark production in the tand Wtchannels are shown and determination of the CKM matrix element |Vtb| is discussed. We also discuss the separate measurement of the top and antitop quark cross section and the ratio. These measurements are sensitive to the parton distribution function in the proton. In addition, the schannel production is explored and the results of a search for flavor changing neutral currents in the single top production is presented.
