A measurement of the Higgs boson mass is presented based on the combined data samples of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in the H→γγ and H→ZZ→4ℓ decay channels. The results are obtained from a simultaneous fit to the reconstructed invariant mass peaks in the two channels and for the two experiments. The measured masses from the individual… (More)
The luminosity calibration for the ATLAS detector at the LHC during pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV in 2010 and 2011 is presented. Evaluation of the luminosity scale is performed using several luminosity-sensitive detectors, and comparisons are made of the long-term stability and accuracy of this calibration applied to the pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV. A… (More)
The paper deals with detection of moving objects by modelling pixel grey level distribution along the time. The detection of moving objects is based on learning and update of background pixel distributions. The choice of appropriate mixture's component for a given pixel is performed by likelihood maximization. An original Markov regularization is proposed… (More)
Connes' view at Yang-Mills theories is reviewed with special emphasis on the gauge invariant scalar product. This landscape is shown to contain Chamseddine and Connes' noncommutative extension of general relativity restricted to flat space-time, if the top mass is between 172 and 204 GeV. Then the Higgs mass is between 188 and 201 GeV.
Many of the interesting physics processes to be measured at the LHC have a signature involving one or more isolated electrons. The electron reconstruction and identification efficiencies of the ATLAS detector at the LHC have been evaluated using proton–proton collision data collected in 2011 at √ s = 7 TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of… (More)
The measurement of the jet energy resolution is presented using data recorded with the ATLAS detector in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 7 TeV. The sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 35 pb −1. Jets are reconstructed from energy deposits measured by the calorime-ters and calibrated using different jet calibration schemes. The jet energy… (More)
Results of a search for new phenomena in events with an energetic photon and large missing transverse momentum in proton-proton collisions at sqrt[s] = 7 TeV are reported. Data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.6 fb(-1) are used. Good agreement is observed between the data and the standard model… (More)
Noncommutative geometry applied to the standard model of electroweak and strong interactions was shown to produce fuzzy relations among masses and gauge couplings. We refine these relations and show then that they are exhaustive.
A search for new heavy particles manifested as resonances in two-jet final states is presented. The data were produced in 7 TeV proton-proton collisions by the LHC and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 315 nb⁻¹ collected by the ATLAS detector. No resonances were observed. Upper limits were set on the product of cross section and signal acceptance… (More)
A search for diphoton events with large missing transverse energy is presented. The data were collected with the ATLAS detector in proton-proton collisions at √s=7 TeV at the CERN Large Hadron Collider and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 3.1 pb⁻¹. No excess of such events is observed above the standard model background prediction. In the context… (More)
