Measurement of the t(t)over-barW and t(t)over-barZ production cross sections in...

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

The production cross sections of top-quark pairs in association with massive vector bosons have been measured using data from pp collisions at s√=8 TeV. The dataset corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 collected by the ATLAS detector in 2012 at the LHC. Final states with two, three or four leptons are considered. A fit to the data considering the tt¯W and tt¯Z processes simultaneously yields a s...


Search for low-scale gravity signatures in multi-jet final states with the ATLA...

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

We search for evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model in the production of final states with multiple high transverse momentum jets, using 20.3 fb−1 of proton-proton collision data recorded by the ATLAS detector at s√ = 8 TeV. No excess of events beyond Standard Model expectations is observed, and upper limits on the visible cross-section for non-Standard Model production of multi-jet final states are set...


Constraints on new phenomena via Higgs boson couplings and invisible decays wit...

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

The ATLAS experiment at the LHC has measured the Higgs boson couplings and mass, and searched for invisible Higgs boson decays, using multiple production and decay channels with up to 4.7 fb−1 of pp collision data at √s=7 TeV and 20.3 fb−1 at √s=8 TeV. In the current study, the measured production and decay rates of the observed Higgs boson in the γγ, ZZ, W W , Zγ, bb, τ τ , and μμ decay channels, along with re...

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

This article reports on a search for dark matter pair production in association with bottom or top quarks in 20.3fb−1 of pp collisions collected at s√=8 TeV by the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Events with large missing transverse momentum are selected when produced in association with high-momentum jets of which one or more are identified as jets containing b-quarks. Final states with top quarks are selected by r...


Search for W′→tb→qqbb Decays in pp Collisions at s√ = 8 TeV with the ATLAS Dete...

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

A search for a massive W′ gauge boson is performed with the ATLAS detector at the LHC in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of s√ = 8 TeV, corresponding to 20.3 fb−1 of integrated luminosity. This analysis is done in the W′→tb→qqbb mode for W′ masses above 1.5 TeV, where the W′ decay products are highly boosted. Novel jet substructure techniques are used to identify jets from high-momentum top quarks to e...


Measurement of the charge asymmetry in dileptonic decays of top quark pairs in ...

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

A measurement of the top--antitop (tt¯) charge asymmetry is presented using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.6 fb−1 of LHC pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV collected by the ATLAS detector. Events with two charged leptons, at least two jets and large missing transverse momentum are selected. Two observables are studied: AℓℓC based on the identified charged leptons, and Att¯C, ...


Performance of the ATLAS muon trigger in pp collisions at s√=8 TeV

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

The performance of the ATLAS muon trigger system has been evaluated with proton--proton collision data collected in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. The performance was primarily evaluated using events containing a pair of muons from the decay of Z bosons. The efficiency is measured for the single-muon trigger for a kinematic region of the transverse momentum pT between 25 ...


Search for heavy Majorana neutrinos with the ATLAS detector in pp collisions at...

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

A search for heavy Majorana neutrinos in events containing a pair of high-pT leptons of the same charge and high-pT jets is presented. The search uses 20.3fb−1 of pp collision data collected with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider with a centre-of-mass energy of s√=8 TeV. The data are found to be consistent with the background-only hypothesis based on the Standard Model expectation. In the con...


Search for resonant diboson production in the ℓℓqq¯ final state in pp collision...

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

This paper reports on a search for narrow resonances in diboson production in the ℓℓqq¯ final state using pp collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20fb−1 collected at s√=8 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. No significant excess of data events over the Standard Model expectation is observed. Upper limits at the 95% confidence level are set on the production cross sec...


Search for a new resonance decaying to a W or Z boson and a Higgs boson in the ...

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

A search for a new resonance decaying to a W or Z boson and a Higgs boson in the ℓℓ/ℓν/νν+bb¯ final states is performed using 20.3 fb−1 of pp collision data recorded at s√= 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The search is conducted by examining the WH/ZH invariant mass distribution for a localized excess. No significant deviation from the Standard Model background prediction is observed...
