The top quark is the heaviest known quark. Because of the large mass of the top quark, the Standard Model predicts a number of special properties that are not shared by lighter quarks, The large mass of the top quark also implies that it couples more strongly than other quarks to the particle responsible for electroweak symmetry breaking. This implies that there can be signatures of new physics that are specific to top quark processes. The LHC at CERN might produce 100,000 top quarks in its first year of running and will produce millions of top quarks even in its early stages. In this talk, I will review the Standard and non-Standard physics of the top quark and present a list of the top ten top quark measurements at the LHC.
