I will review the status and prospects for searching for new physics via the SMEFT, focusing on the importance and impact of top quark data.
I will discuss how top quark data directly and indirectly improves the global new physics reach, showing results from recent global analyses. I will also highlight some avenues for future improvements in sensitivity, particularly on top quark electroweak interactions, that are currently relatively poorly known. These include loop-induced effects and the search for high-energy and high-multiplicity processes that exploit the characteristic unitarity-violating behaviour of EFT amplitudes.
