A search for singly produced vector-like $T/Y$ quark is performed in proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of $13$ TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $139.1 fb^{-1}$, recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC from 2015-18. The analysis focused on the hadronic channel of $T/Y \rightarrow Wb$ decay mode. The hadronic channel is not a clean channel, unlike the leptonic channel, because of the contribution coming from the QCD processes, which accounts for aโ€ฆย Expand
