The Higgs Boson and the Top Quark

Keywords: Higgs boson; top quark; Large Hadron Collider


The Higgs boson and the top quark are the most massive elementary particles of the Standard Model, and
their study is among the highest-priority goals of the program of the Large Hadron Collider. In this contribution,
a brief review is presented of recent results in top physics from such accelerator, with emphasis
on the many and strong connections of the top quark with the Higgs boson. The final sections review the
bounds on the top-quark Yukawa coupling, its sign, and charge-parity structure, which have been derived
using recent results.
