1  Based on 4.59 fb${}^{-1}$ of data, using neural networks for signal and background separation. ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\mathit q}}{)}$ = $46$ $\pm1$ $\pm6$ pb and ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\overline{\mathit t}}}{{\mathit q}}{)}$ = $23$ $\pm1$ $\pm3$ pb are separately measured, as well as their ratio ${{\mathit R}}$ = ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\mathit q}}{)}/{\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\overline{\mathit t}}}{{\mathit q}}{)}$ = $2.04$ $\pm0.13$ $\pm0.12$. The results are for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5 GeV, and those for other ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ values are given by eq.(4) and Table IV. The measurements give $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ = $1.02$ $\pm0.07$ or $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ $>$ 0.88 (95$\%$ CL).
2  Based on 1.04 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. The result gives $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ = $1.13$ ${}^{+0.14}_{-0.13}$ from the ratio ${\mathit \sigma (}$exp${)}/{\mathit \sigma (}$th${)}$, where ${\mathit \sigma (}$th${)}$ is the SM prediction for $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ = 1. The 95$\%$ CL lower bound of $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ $>$ 0.75 is found if $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ $<$ 1 is assumed. ${\mathit \sigma (}{{\mathit t}}{)}$ = $59$ ${}^{+18}_{-16}$ pb and ${\mathit \sigma (}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}{)}$ = $33$ ${}^{+13}_{-12}$ pb are found for the separate single ${{\mathit t}}$ and ${{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ production cross sections, respectively. The results assume ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5 GeV for the acceptance.
3  Based on 1.17 fb${}^{-1}$ of data for ${{\mathit \ell}}$ = ${{\mathit \mu}}$, 1.56 fb${}^{-1}$ of data for ${{\mathit \ell}}$ = ${{\mathit e}}$ at 7 TeV collected during 2011. The result gives $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ = $1.020$ $\pm0.046$(meas)$\pm0.017$(th). The 95$\%$ CL lower bound of $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ $>$ 0.92 is found if $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ $<$ 1 is assumed. The results assume ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5 GeV for the acceptance.
4  Based on 36 pb${}^{-1}$ of data. The first error is statistical + systematic combined, the second is luminosity. The result gives $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ = $1.114$ $\pm0.22$(exp)$\pm0.02$(th) from the ratio ${\mathit \sigma (}$exp${)}/{\mathit \sigma (}$th${)}$, where ${\mathit \sigma (}$th${)}$ is the SM prediction for $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ = 1. The 95$\%$ CL lower bound of $\vert V_{tb}\vert $ $>$ 0.62 (0.68) is found from the 2D (BDT) analysis under the constraint 0 $<$ $\vert V_{tb}\vert ^2$ $<$ 1.
