Title: Top Physics at the LHC

Abstract: I review the description of top quark processes at the LHC. The top
quark is important both in its own right and as a source of background
for new processes. Emphasis is put on theoretical tools and the
advances in calculational techniques that have allowed their creation.
The LHC will measure the production cross sections, mass, kinematic 
distributions, spin correlations and the associated production of bosons 
and top quarks.
