The production of strange hadrons (
High Salinity Shelf Water (HSSW) formed in the Ross Sea of Antarctica is a precursor to Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW), a water mass that constitutes the bottom limb of the global overturning circulation. HSSW production rates are poorly constrained, as insitu observations are scarce. Here, we present highverticalandtemporalresolution salinity time series collected in austral winter 2017 from a mooring in Terra Nova Bay (TNB), one of two major sites of HSSW production in the Ross Sea. We calculate an annualaverage HSSW production rate of ~0.4

The inclusive production of the same particle species and the corresponding ratios are also reported. The production of multistrange hadrons, Ξ^{±}and Ω^{±}, and their associated particle ratios in jets and in the underlying event are measured for the first time. In both pp and p–Pb collisions, the baryontomeson and baryontobaryon yield ratios measured in jets differ from the inclusive particle production for low and intermediate hadronp _{T}(0.6–6 GeV/c ). Ratios measured in the underlying event are in turn similar to those measured for inclusive particle production. In pp collisions, the particle production in jets is compared with Pythia 8 predictions with three colourreconnection implementation modes. None of them fully reproduces the data in the measured hadronp _{T}region. The maximum deviation is observed for Ξ^{±}and Ω^{±}which reaches a factor of about six. The event multiplicity dependence is further investigated in p−Pb collisions. In contrast to what is observed in the underlying event, there is no significant eventmultiplicity dependence for particle production in jets. The presented measurements provide novel constraints on hadronisation and its Monte Carlo description. In particular, they demonstrate that the fragmentation of jets alone is insufficient to describe the strange and multistrange particle production in hadronic collisions at LHC energies. 
Abstract A search for supersymmetry involving the pair production of gluinos decaying via offshell thirdgeneration squarks into the lightest neutralino
is reported. It exploits LHC proton–proton collision data at a centreofmass energy$$(\tilde{\chi }^0_1)$$ $\left({\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0}\right)$ TeV with an integrated luminosity of 139 fb$$\sqrt{s} = 13$$ $\sqrt{s}=13$ collected with the ATLAS detector from 2015 to 2018. The search uses events containing large missing transverse momentum, up to one electron or muon, and several energetic jets, at least three of which must be identified as containing$$^{1}$$ ${}^{1}$b hadrons. Both a simple kinematic event selection and an event selection based upon a deep neuralnetwork are used. No significant excess above the predicted background is found. In simplified models involving the pair production of gluinos that decay via offshell top (bottom) squarks, gluino masses less than 2.44 TeV (2.35 TeV) are excluded at 95% CL for a massless Limits are also set on the gluino mass in models with variable branching ratios for gluino decays to$$\tilde{\chi }^0_1.$$ ${\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0}.$$$b\bar{b}\tilde{\chi }^0_1,$$ $b\overline{b}{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0},$ and$$t\bar{t}\tilde{\chi }^0_1$$ $t\overline{t}{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{0}$$$t\bar{b}\tilde{\chi }^_1/\bar{t}b\tilde{\chi }^+_1.$$ $t\overline{b}{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{}/\overline{t}b{\stackrel{~}{\chi}}_{1}^{+}.$ 
Abstract A search for pairproduced vectorlike quarks using events with exactly one lepton (
e or ), at least four jets including at least one$$\mu $$ $\mu $b tagged jet, and large missing transverse momentum is presented. Data from proton–proton collisions at a centreofmass energy of 13$$\sqrt{s}=$$ $\sqrt{s}=$ , recorded by the ATLAS detector at the LHC from 2015 to 2018 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 139 fb$$\text {TeV}$$ $\text{TeV}$ , are analysed. Vectorlike partners$$^{1}$$ ${}^{1}$T andB of the top and bottom quarks are considered, as is a vectorlikeX with charge , assuming their decay into a$$+5/3$$ $+5/3$W ,Z , or Higgs boson and a thirdgeneration quark. No significant deviations from the Standard Model expectation are observed. Upper limits on the production crosssection ofT andB quark pairs as a function of their mass are derived for various decay branching ratio scenarios. The strongest lower limits on the masses are 1.59 assuming massdegenerate vectorlike quarks and branching ratios corresponding to the weakisospin doublet model, and 1.47$$\text {TeV}$$ $\text{TeV}$ (1.46$$\text {TeV}$$ $\text{TeV}$ ) for exclusive$$\text {TeV}$$ $\text{TeV}$ ($$T \rightarrow Zt$$ $T\to Zt$ ) decays. In addition, lower limits on the$$B/X \rightarrow Wt$$ $B/X\to Wt$T andB quark masses are derived for all possible branching ratios.

Abstract Leptoquarks (
s) are hypothetical particles that appear in various extensions of the Standard Model (SM), that can explain observed differences between SM theory predictions and experimental results. The production of these particles has been widely studied at various experiments, most recently at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and stringent bounds have been placed on their masses and couplings, assuming the simplest beyondSM (BSM) hypotheses. However, the limits are significantly weaker for$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ models with family nonuniversal couplings containing enhanced couplings to thirdgeneration fermions. We present a new study on the production of a$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ at the LHC, with preferential couplings to thirdgeneration fermions, considering protonproton collisions at$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ and$$\sqrt{s} = 13 \, \textrm{TeV}$$ $\sqrt{s}=13\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{TeV}$ . Such a hypothesis is well motivated theoretically and it can explain the recent anomalies in the precision measurements of$$\sqrt{s} = 13.6 \, \textrm{TeV}$$ $\sqrt{s}=13.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{TeV}$ meson decay rates, specifically the$$\textrm{B}$$ $\text{B}$ ratios. Under a simplified model where the$$R_{D^{(*)}}$$ ${R}_{{D}^{(\ast )}}$ masses and couplings are free parameters, we focus on cases where the$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ decays to a$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ lepton and a$$\tau $$ $\tau $ quark, and study how the results are affected by different assumptions about chiral currents and interference effects with other BSM processes with the same final states, such as diagrams with a heavy vector boson,$$\textrm{b}$$ $\text{b}$ . The analysis is performed using machine learning techniques, resulting in an increased discovery reach at the LHC, allowing us to probe new physics phase space which addresses the$$\textrm{Z}^{\prime }$$ ${\text{Z}}^{\prime}$ meson anomalies, for$$\textrm{B}$$ $\text{B}$ masses up to$$\textrm{LQ}$$ $\text{LQ}$ , for the high luminosity LHC scenario.$$5.00\, \textrm{TeV}$$ $5.00\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{TeV}$
