 +====== TTP04-03 Top quark pair production and decay at hadron colliders ====== 
 +   <​hidden TTP04-03 ​ Top quark pair production and decay at hadron colliders > In ongoing and upcoming hadron collider experiments,​ top quark physics 
 + will play an important r\^ole in testing the Standard Model and its 
 + ​possible extensions.  
 + In this work we present analytic results for the differential 
 + cross sections of top quark pair production 
 + in hadronic collisions at next-to-leading order 
 + in the QCD coupling, keeping the full dependence on the spins of the top 
 + ​quarks. 
 + These results are combined with the corresponding next-to-leading 
 + order results for the  
 + decay of polarized top quarks into dilepton, lepton plus jets, and 
 + all jets final states.  
 + As an application we predict double differential angular 
 + ​distributions which are due to the QCD-induced top quark spin 
 + ​correlations in the intermediate state. In addition to the analytic 
 + ​results,​ we give numerical  
 + ​results in terms of fit functions that can easily be  
 + ​used ​ in an experimental analysis.
