Abstract

We investigate the possibility of studying new physics in various processes of t-quark production using kinematical distributions of the secondary lepton coming from the decay of t quarks. We show that the angular distribution of the secondary lepton is insensitive to the anomalous tbW vertex and hence is a pure probe of new physics in a generic process of t-quark production. The energy distribution of the lepton is distinctly affected by anomalous tbW couplings and can be used to analyze them independent of the production process of t quarks. The effects of t polarization on the distributions of the decay lepton are demonstrated for top-pair production process at a $\gamma \gamma$ collider mediated by a heavy Higgs boson.
