Abstract

Abstract In R p-violating supersymmetric theories there are new two-body top quark decays which can substantially suppress the branching fraction of the Standard Model process t → bW + → bℓ + ν ℓ. With some choices of the dominant R p-violating operator theCDF top-quark mass bound can be lowered below the LEP bound. With other choices, however, leptonic signals from top decay become much stronger; in such scenarios the bounds on the top-quark mass become more stringent than the Standard Model bounds. In future top-quark searches R p-violating decays could lead to the most prominent signals.
