The top quark legacy of the LHC Run II for PDF and SMEFT analyses
In the link above we list results for Wilson coefficients and/or PDFs in four different folders. These results include histograms of Wilson coefficients, kernel density estimations, confidence intervals, correlations between the Wilson coefficients and with PDFs, PDF luminosities, etc.
A detailed description of these results can be found in the original manuscript.
The folders are the following:
fixedPDF_cons : Results for Wilson coefficients using the conservative fixed-PDF set defined in Sect. 2.1 of the manuscript, which excludes top quark measurements.
fixedPDF_alltop : Results for Wilson coefficients using the fixed-PDF set described in Sect 2.1 of the paper, which includes the top quark measurements (inclusive, asymmetries, W-helicity fractions, associated top, etc). For the fit of the Wilson coefficients we consider 3 different dataset scenarios:
simulPDFEFT : Simultaneous fit of PDFs and Wilson coefficients as described in Sect. 6 of the original manuscript.
simulPDFEFT_CMS2D : Simultaneous fit of PDFs and Wilson coefficients using the CMS 2D distribution discussed in Sect. 5.3 of the manuscript.
fixedPDF_EFT : Results for Wilson coefficients using a fixed-PDF fit obtained from a PDF-SMEFT fit. It is presented as an extra check of the stability of the results.
In these folders we consider up to 3 different scenarios:
fixedPDF_EFT): includes all the top data of this study.
fixedPDF_EFT): includes exclusively the top quark pair production processes of Table 2.1 of the manuscript.
fixedPDF_alltop) : includes exclusively the top quark pair production processes of Table 2.1 and the asymmetry measurements of Table 2.2 of the manuscript.
