Description

I present an overview of recent measurements by the D0 experiment in the top quark sector: the forward-backward asymmetry A_FB in tt production due to higher order effects of QCD, both inclusive and differential as a function of the mass of the ttbar pair, the differential tt production cross sections, the evidence for single top quark production in the s-channel, and, to conclude, the world's most precise single measurement of the mass of the top quark. The measurements are performed employing the full set of data corresponding to 9.7 fb-1 acquired by the D0 experiment in Run II of the Fermilab Tevatron proton-antiproton collider at a centre-of-mass energy of sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV.
