- Detailed studies of weak decays can reveal the presence of very massive quanta like heavy top quarks or fourth family quarks. The decay K/sup +/ ..-->.. ..pi../sup +/..nu.. anti ..nu.. and B/sub d/ - anti B/sub d/ mixing are particularly promising fields for such searches. We infer a rather conservative lower limit of 70 GeV on the top mass form recent ARGUS data on B/sub d/ - anti B/sub d/ mixing, near-maximal B/sub 8/ - anti B/sub 8/ mixing is another consequence. If on the other hand top were detected in Z/sup 0/ decays, then the presence of New Physics would be established in B/sup 0/ decays. The ratio between tau(B/sup 0/) and tau(B/sup + -/) is of considerable phenomenological relevance here.
