Title: Weak interaction sum rules for polarized tt production at the CERN LHC

Abstract

We consider two polarization asymmetries in the process of top-antitop production at LHC. We show that the theoretical predictions for these two quantities, at the strong and electroweak partonic one-loop level, are free of QCD and QED effects. At this perturbative level we derive two sum rules, that relate measurable quantities of top-antitop production to genuinely weak inputs. This would allow to perform two independent tests of the candidate theoretical model, with a precision that will be fixed by the future experimental accuracies of the different polarization measurements. A tentative quantitative illustration of this statement for a specific minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) scenario is enclosed, and a generalization to include two other future realistic measurements is also proposed.
