  2. Abstract This paper presents a search for direct top squark pair production in events with missing transverse momentum plus either a pair of jets consistent with Standard Model Higgs boson decay into b -quarks or a same-flavour opposite-sign dilepton pair with an invariant mass consistent with a Z boson. The analysis is performed using the proton–proton collision data at $$\sqrt{s}=13$$ s = 13 TeV collected with the ATLAS detector during the LHC Run-2, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 139 fb $$^{-1}$$ - 1 . No excess is observed in the data above the Standard Model predictions. The results are interpretedmore »in simplified models featuring direct production of pairs of either the lighter top squark ( $$\tilde{t}_1$$ t ~ 1 ) or the heavier top squark ( $$\tilde{t}_2$$ t ~ 2 ), excluding at 95% confidence level $$\tilde{t}_1$$ t ~ 1 and $$\tilde{t}_2$$ t ~ 2 masses up to about 1220 and 875 GeV, respectively.« less
  3. Figure 5b of the paper [1] contained a misinterpretation in the comparison between the reported new ATLAS measurement of the process pp → Xp and previously published CMS data [2]. The ATLAS measurement corresponds to cases where either proton dissociates.
  4. A bstract A search for new-physics resonances decaying into a lepton and a jet performed by the ATLAS experiment is presented. Scalar leptoquarks pair-produced in pp collisions at $$ \sqrt{s} $$ s = 13 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider are considered using an integrated luminosity of 139 fb − 1 , corresponding to the full Run 2 dataset. They are searched for in events with two electrons or two muons and two or more jets, including jets identified as arising from the fragmentation of c - or b -quarks. The observed yield in each channel is consistent with themore »Standard Model background expectation. Leptoquarks with masses below 1.8 TeV and 1.7 TeV are excluded in the electron and muon channels, respectively, assuming a branching ratio into a charged lepton and a quark of 100%, with minimal dependence on the quark flavour. Upper limits on the aforementioned branching ratio are also given as a function of the leptoquark mass.« less
  5. Two additions impacting tables 3 and 4 in ref. [1] are presented in the following. No significant impact is found for other results or figures in ref. [1].
  6. A bstract A search for a chargino-neutralino pair decaying via the 125 GeV Higgs boson into photons is presented. The study is based on the data collected between 2015 and 2018 with the ATLAS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 139 fb − 1 of pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. No significant excess over the expected background is observed. Upper limits at 95% confidence level for a massless $$ {\tilde{\chi}}_1^0 $$ χ ˜ 1 0 are set on several electroweakino production cross-sections and the visible cross-section for beyond the Standard Model processes.more »In the context of simplified supersymmetric models, 95% confidence-level limits of up to 310 GeV in $$ m\left({\tilde{\chi}}_1^{\pm }/{\tilde{\chi}}_2^0\right) $$ m χ ˜ 1 ± / χ ˜ 2 0 , where $$ m\left({\tilde{\chi}}_1^0\right) $$ m χ ˜ 1 0 = 0 . 5 GeV, are set.

  7. A bstract This paper presents a search for new heavy particles decaying into a pair of top quarks using 139 fb − 1 of proton-proton collision data recorded at a centre-of-mass energy of $$ \sqrt{s} $$ s = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The search is performed using events consistent with pair production of high-transverse-momentum top quarks and their subsequent decays into the fully hadronic final states. The analysis is optimized for resonances decaying into a $$ t\overline{t} $$ t t ¯ pair with mass above 1.4 TeV, exploiting a dedicated multivariate technique withmore »jet substructure to identify hadronically decaying top quarks using large-radius jets and evaluating the background expectation from data. No significant deviation from the background prediction is observed. Limits are set on the production cross-section times branching fraction for the new Z ′ boson in a topcolor-assisted-technicolor model. The Z ′ boson masses below 3.9 and 4.7 TeV are excluded at 95% confidence level for the decay widths of 1% and 3%, respectively.« less
