We report on the predictions of the Standard Model for the single top-quark production at LHC and on the analysis strategies adopted by CMS and ATLAS for the single top-quark search. The Standard Model predicts the production of single top quark through three electroweak processes in the LHC energy reach, referred to as t, s and tW channels, resulting in distinct topologies and backgrounds. Different analysis strategies to search for the single top have been developed by CMS and ATLAS experiments. For the 14TeV center-of-mass energy scenario all the channels have been considered, while for the 10TeV scenario a specific strategy has been developed only for the t-channel and has been applied on Monte Carlo samples assuming an integrated luminosity of 200 pb−1.
