Measurements of Higgs boson production and couplings in the four-lepton channel...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

The final ATLAS Run 1 measurements of Higgs boson production and couplings in the decay channel H→ZZ∗→ℓ+ℓ−ℓ′+ℓ′−, where ℓ,ℓ′=e or μ, are presented. These measurements were performed using pp collision data corresponding to integrated luminosities of 4.5 fb−1 and 20.3 fb−1 at center-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV, respectively, recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The H→ZZ∗→4ℓ signal is observed wit...


Observation and measurement of Higgs boson decays to WW∗ with the ATLAS detector

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

We report the observation of Higgs boson decays to WW∗ based on an excess over background of 6.1 standard deviations in the dilepton final state, where the Standard Model expectation is 5.8 standard deviations. Evidence for the vector-boson fusion (VBF) production process is obtained with a significance of 3.2 standard deviations. The results are obtained from a data sample corresponding to an integrated lumino...


Measurement of colour flow with the jet pull angle in t(t)over-bar events using...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

The distribution and orientation of energy inside jets is predicted to be an experimental handle on colour connections between the hard--scatter quarks and gluons initiating the jets. This Letter presents a measurement of the distribution of one such variable, the jet pull angle. The pull angle is measured for jets produced in tt¯ events with one W boson decaying leptonically and the other decaying to jets usin...


Measurements of the nuclear modification factor for jets in Pb+Pb collisions at...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

Measurements of inclusive jet production are performed in pp and Pb+Pb collisions at sNN−−−√=2.76 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the LHC, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 4.0 pb−1 and 0.14 nb−1 , respectively. The jets are identified with the anti-kt algorithm with R=0.4, and the spectra are measured over the kinematic range of jet transverse momentum 32<pT<500 GeV, and absolute rapidity |y|<2.1 and ...


Search for new light gauge bosons in Higgs boson decays to four-lepton final st...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

This paper presents a search for Higgs bosons decaying to four leptons, either electrons or muons, via one or two light exotic gauge bosons Zd, H→ZZd→4ℓ or H→ZdZd→4ℓ. The search was performed using pp collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 20 fb−1 at the center-of-mass energy of s√=8TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The observed data are well described...


Search for pair-produced long-lived neutral particles decaying in the ATLAS had...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

The ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is used to search for the decay of a scalar boson to a pair of long-lived particles, neutral under the Standard Model gauge group, in 20.3 fb−1 of data collected in proton--proton collisions at s√ = 8 TeV. This search is sensitive to long-lived particles that decay to Standard Model particles producing jets at the outer edge of the ATLAS electromagnetic ca...


Search for a Charged Higgs Boson Produced in the Vector-boson Fusion Mode with ...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

A search for a charged Higgs boson, H±, decaying to a W± boson and a Z boson is presented. The search is based on 20.3 fb−1 of proton-proton collision data at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The H± boson is assumed to be produced via vector-boson fusion and the decays W±→qq′¯ and Z→e+e−/μ+μ− are considered. The search is performed in a range of charged Higgs boson m...


Determination of the top-quark pole mass using t(t)over-bar+1-jet events collec...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

The normalized differential cross section for top-quark pair production in association with at least one jet is studied as a function of the inverse of the invariant mass of the tt¯+1-jet system. This distribution can be used for a precise determination of the top-quark mass since gluon radiation depends on the mass of the quarks. The experimental analysis is based on proton--proton collision data collected by ...


Search for squarks and gluinos in final states with jets and missing transverse...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

A search for squarks and gluinos in final states containing hadronic jets, missing transverse momentum but no electrons or muons is presented. The data were recorded in 2015 by the ATLAS experiment in √s=13 TeV proton–proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider. No excess above the Standard Model background expectation was observed in 3.2 fb−1 of analyzed data. Results are interpreted within simplified model...


Search for supersymmetry in a final state containing two photons and missing tr...

Onofre, A.; Castro, Nuno Filipe Silva Fernandes; ATLAS Collaboration

A search has been made for supersymmetry in a final state containing two photons and missing transverse momentum using the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The search makes use of 3.2 fb−1 of proton-proton collision data collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV in 2015. Using a combination of data-driven and Monte-Carlo-based approaches, the Standard Model background is estimated to be 0.27+0....
