Title Irreducible QCD Backgrounds to Top Searches in Semi-Leptonic Final States at the Next Linear Collider
Abstract At future electron-positron colliders, one of the largest irreducible backgrounds to top searches in the channel `4 jets + lepton + missing energy' comes from QCD events of order alpha(2)(s). We compute here such processes exactly at the parton level by resorting to 2-->6 matrix elements exploiting helicity amplitude techniques. We adopt a typical selection procedure based on the tagging of a high momentum and separated lepton. We finally outline kinematic differences between signal and background events that can be exploited to further reduce such a QCD noise.
