Abstract

There exist several recent studies of the top-quark chromoelectric dipole moment (CEDM) in the context of searching for charge parity violating signals in top-quark pair production at the LHC. Most of these studies constrain the CEDM either from deviations in the top-pair cross section from its standard model value, or from T-odd asymmetries in the dimuon channel. Motivated by ATLAS and CMS interest, we extend the study of T-odd asymmetries to the lepton plus jets channel. At the parton level, using MADGRAPH5, we identify the most promising signals and their statistical sensitivity. We find that the signals with larger sensitivity to the CEDM require distinguishing between b and jets and propose a simple way to address this.
