| 6 | Use Software.Madgraph / Software.MadEvent to calculate the %$t'\bar t'$% and t-channel %$t'j$% production cross sections |

| 7 | at the LHC for different %$m_{t'}$%. |

| 8 | |

| 9 | ==== 1. ==== |

| 10 | How do the cross section change with %$m_{t'}$%? Which one is dominating at low and high %$m_{t'}$%? |

| 11 | |

| 12 | ==== 2. ==== |

| 13 | Consider the case where the CKM matrix is not diagonal and the off-diagonal elements involving the %$t'$% and light quarks are not |

| 14 | small. How do the results for production change? How do the BR's change? |
