Description

I will show how the general trilinear interactions of the top quark (or any other fermion) arising from dimension-six gauge invariant operators are simplified when several operators in the Buchmuller & Wyler list, recently found to be redundant (arxiv:0811.3842, arxiv:0904.2387) are dropped. I will present some practical applications of this simplification for phenomenology, including the study of top FCNC processes (arxiv:1003.3173).
