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)
A search for Higgs boson decays to invisible particles is performed using 20.3 fb −1 of pp collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The process considered is Higgs boson production in association with a vector boson (V = W or Z) that decays hadronically, resulting in events with two or(More)
A search for the decays of the Higgs and Z bosons to a ϕ meson and a photon is performed with a pp collision data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.7  fb^{-1} collected at sqrt[s]=13  TeV with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. No significant excess of events is observed above the background, and 95% confidence level upper limits on the(More)
Search for new phenomena in final states with an energetic jet and large missing transverse momentum in pp collisions at √ s = 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector Abstract Results of a search for new phenomena in final states with an energetic jet and large missing transverse momentum are reported. The search uses 20.3 fb −1 of √ s = 8 TeV data collected in 2012(More)
Search for direct top squark pair production in final states with two tau leptons in pp collisions at √ s = 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector Abstract A search for direct pair production of the super-symmetric partner of the top quark, decaying via a scalar tau to a nearly massless gravitino, has been performed using 20 fb −1 of proton–proton collision data at(More)
A search for heavy long-lived multi-charged particles is performed using the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Data collected in 2012 at √ s = 8 TeV from pp collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb −1 are examined. Particles producing anomalously high ionisation, consistent with long-lived massive particles with electric charges from |q| =(More)
Two searches for supersymmetric particles in final states containing a same-flavour opposite-sign lep-ton pair, jets and large missing transverse momentum are presented. The proton–proton collision data used in these searches were collected at a centre-of-mass energy √ s = 8 TeV by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider and corresponds to an(More)
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(-)(More)
This paper reviews and extends searches for the direct pair production of the scalar supersymmetric partners of the top and bottom quarks in proton-proton collisions collected by the ATLAS collaboration during the LHC Run 1. Most of the analyses use 20 [Formula: see text] of collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of [Formula: see text] TeV, although in some(More)
ATLAS measurements of the azimuthal aniso-tropy in lead–lead collisions at √ s NN = 2.76 TeV are shown using a dataset of approximately 7 µb −1 collected at the LHC in 2010. The measurements are performed for charged particles with transverse momenta 0.5 < p T < 20 GeV and in the pseudorapidity range |η| < 2.5. The anisotropy is characterized by the Fourier(More)
