Abstract

We have studied direct top quark production and single top quark production through anomalous flavor changing chromomagnetic moments. We find that it is possible to detect anomalous flavor changing chromomagnetic moments of the top quark using direct top quark production if the charm quark coupling strength is larger than [kappa]c/[lambda]>.062 TeV-1 at Run 2 of the Tevatron, or larger than [kappa]c/[lambda]>.0084 TeV-1 at the LHC, or if the up quark coupling is larger than [kappa]u/[lambda]>.019 TeV-1 at the Tevatron or larger than [kappa]u/[lambda]>.0033 TeV-1 at the LHC. Single top quark production cannot measure couplings as small, but may still be of use since it has a related process within the standard model, which will be studied. A deviation of this measurement from the standard model may point toward flavor changing couplings of this type.
