Description

We describe searches for resonant top-antitop production at the Tevatron. Resonant top pair production could arise from the decays of massive Z-like bosons in extended gauge theories, KK states of the gluon or Z, axigluons, topcolor, and other BSM theories. We use different techniques to study the top-antitop invariant mass spectrum and set model independent limits on new resonant top-antitop production mechanisms that would appear as bumps in invariant mass
