Abstract: We study the sensitivity of the Large Hadron Collider, LHC, to top quark chromomagnetic, CMDM, and chromoelectric, CEDM, dipole moments and Wtb effective couplings in singletop production in association with a W, boson, followed by semileptonic decay of the top. We calculate the top polarization and the effects of these anomalous couplings on it at two centre-ofmass, cm, energies, TeV and, TeV. As a measure of top polarization, we look at decay-lepton angular distributions in the laboratory frame, without requiring reconstruction of the rest frame of the top, and study the effect of the anomalous couplings on these distributions. We construct certain asymmetries to study the sensitivity of these distributions to top-quark couplings. TheWt single-top production mode helps to isolate the anomalous ttg and Wtb couplings, in contrast to top-pair production and other single-top production modes, where other new-physics effects can also contribute. We determine individual limits on the dominant couplings, viz., the real part of the CMDM Rer, the imaginary part of the CEDM Imr, and the real part of the tensorWtb coupling Ref, R, which may be obtained by utilizing these asymmetries at the LHC. We also obtain simultaneous limits on pairs of these couplings taking two couplings to be non-zero at a time.
