Description

Measurements of top production in the LHCb acceptance have particular sensitivity to high values of Bjorken-x, and offer complementary PDF constraints to measurements at the central detectors. In addition, the higher contribution from quark-initiated production to top pair production in the forward region leads to a larger expected charge asymmetry at LHCb than at the other experiments.
The latest results by the LHCb collaboration on top pair production will be discussed.
