This studentship involved the implementation, within the Pythia generator, of a class of novel BSM processes which allow flavour changing neutral currents, specifically resulting in ttbar production in the final state. This property arises from the emergence of the effective couplings to proposed new resonant states within the model. Because of the existence of the non relativistic top in the final state, this will involve the full implementation of the spin structure of the interaction which is not, so far, implemented within Pythia.
