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)
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)
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)
Additional jet activity in dijet events is measured using pp collisions at ATLAS at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, for jets reconstructed using the anti-k t algorithm with radius parameter R = 0.6. This is done using variables such as the fraction of dijet events without an additional jet in the rapidity interval bounded by the dijet subsystem and(More)
