Description

We present measurements of the inclusive top quark pair production cross section in $p\bar{p}$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV utilizing data collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Results for the lepton (e or mu)+jet, dilepton, tau+jet and fully hadronic decay modes are provided. We also present a measurement of the forward-backward charge asymmetry in top quark production and use the cross section measurements to extract the branching ratio $\boldsymbol{B(t\to Wb)/B(t\to Wq)}$
