Description

The top quark pair charge asymmetry is an asymmetry predicted to occur beyond leading-order QCD in the Standard Model, and may be significantly enhanced by the presence of new physics. The ttbar production charge asymmetry is measured inclusively and differentially using the 7 and 8 TeV ATLAS datasets. Making use of the large number of top quark pairs collected, we also present measurements of the spin correlation between top and anti-top quarks using several variables and discuss their sensitivity to new physics. A search for flavour changing neutral current processes in top quark decays is also presented.
