Description

One of the most intriguing measurements in particle physics in recent years is the forward-backward asymmetry of top quark production. Although calculations at next-to-next-to-leading order have largely resolved the anomaly, these measurements are still very interesting as precision tests of the standard model and of physics beyond the standard model. We summarize the results on the top quark forward-backward asymmetry at CDF and present new results from CDF on the bottom quark forward-backward asymmetry.
