Title: "Top Quark Physics and Higgs Searches at the Tevatron Collider"


Since the observation of the top quark in 1995, considerable progress has been made by the Tevatron experiments in measuring top quark production and decay properties, with the result that the uncertainty associated to the mass of the top quark is now less than 3%. Measurements of top-antitop pair production and decay are consistent with predictions of the Standard Model of particle physics, although limited in precision by the available statistics. Starting from the present results I will examine prospects for top quark physics and related tests of Standard Model predictions, and for discovery of a Higgs boson at the next run of the Tevatron collider.
