1  Based on 955 pb${}^{-1}$. AALTONEN 2009F used differences in the ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ production angular distribution and polarization correlation to descriminate between ${{\mathit g}}$ ${{\mathit g}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ and ${{\mathit q}}$ ${{\overline{\mathit q}}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ subprocesses. The combination with the result of AALTONEN 2008AG gives $0.07$ ${}^{+0.15}_{-0.07}$.
2  Result is based on 0.96 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. The contribution of the subprocesses ${{\mathit g}}$ ${{\mathit g}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ and ${{\mathit q}}$ ${{\overline{\mathit q}}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ is distinguished by using the difference between quark and gluon initiated jets in the number of small $p_T$ (0.3 GeV $<$ $p_T$ $<$ 3 GeV) charged particles in the central region ($\vert \eta \vert $ $<$ 1.1).
