Abstract
We study the single production of top quarks in e+e- ep and pp collisions in the context of unparticle physics through the Flavor Violating (FV) unparticle vertices and compute the total cross-sections for single top production as functions of scale dimension $d_{{\cal U}} $. We find that among all, LHC is the most promising facility to probe the unparticle physics via single top quark production processes.
