ABSTRACT We study single top quark production at the HERA and THERA colliders as coming from the FCNC vertices tcgamma and tcZ that appear at one loop level in Topcolor-assisted technicolor models (TC2). In contrast with previous expectations, we find that the production cross section is of order 10^-6 pb for HERA and 10^-4 pb for THERA (even lower that the SM prediction). Therefore, none of the two colliders are capable to probe the pseudoscalar top-pion or the scalar top-higgs predicted in TC2 models via single top production. Comment: 5 pages, 2 figures.

    ABSTRACT: We present a top-condensation model in which the CP symmetry is spontaneously broken at the electroweak scale due to the condensation of two composite Higgs doublets. In particular the CP-violating phase of the CKM matrix is generated. A simpler model where only one quark family is included is also discussed. In this case, for a general four-fermion interaction ($G_{tb}\neq 0$), the particle spectrum is the one of the one Higgs doublet model. Comment: 25 pages, LaTeX. References and comment added

    ABSTRACT: Linac-ring analogues of the LHC and VLHC based standard type ep collider proposals are discussed. It is shown that sufficiently high luminosities can be obtained with TESLA-like linacs, whereas essential modifications are required for CLIC technology. The physics search potential of proposed ep colliders is demonstrated using pair production of heavy quarks as an example.
