Measurements of single top-quark production in pp collisions by the CMS experiment

Abstract

A summary of studies of electroweak top-quark production performed by the CMS collaboration is presented. The results include measurements of production cross sections, extraction of the value of Vtb|V_{tb}|, determination of W-boson helicity in top-quark decays and top-quark spin asymmetry, and a search for anomalous couplings in the Wtb vertex. No deviations from predictions of the standard model are found.Comment: Proceedings of the 8th International Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle (CKM 2014), Vienna, Austria, September 8-12, 201
