  1. 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.
  2. 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].
  3. Abstract The results of a search for electroweakino pair production $$pp \rightarrow \tilde{\chi }^\pm _1 \tilde{\chi }^0_2$$ p p → χ ~ 1 ± χ ~ 2 0 in which the chargino ( $$\tilde{\chi }^\pm _1$$ χ ~ 1 ± ) decays into a W boson and the lightest neutralino ( $$\tilde{\chi }^0_1$$ χ ~ 1 0 ), while the heavier neutralino ( $$\tilde{\chi }^0_2$$ χ ~ 2 0 ) decays into the Standard Model 125 GeV Higgs boson and a second $$\tilde{\chi }^0_1$$ χ ~ 1 0 are presented. The signal selection requires a pair of b -tagged jetsmore »consistent with those from a Higgs boson decay, and either an electron or a muon from the W boson decay, together with missing transverse momentum from the corresponding neutrino and the stable neutralinos. The analysis is based on data corresponding to 139  $$\mathrm {fb}^{-1}$$ fb - 1 of $$\sqrt{s}=13$$ s = 13 TeV pp collisions provided by the Large Hadron Collider and recorded by the ATLAS detector. No statistically significant evidence of an excess of events above the Standard Model expectation is found. Limits are set on the direct production of the electroweakinos in simplified models, assuming pure wino cross-sections. Masses of $$\tilde{\chi }^{\pm }_{1}/\tilde{\chi }^{0}_{2}$$ χ ~ 1 ± / χ ~ 2 0 up to 740 GeV are excluded at 95% confidence level for a massless $$\tilde{\chi }^{0}_{1}$$ χ ~ 1 0 .« less
  4. Abstract A search for direct pair production of scalar partners of the top quark (top squarks or scalar third-generation up-type leptoquarks) in the all-hadronic $$t{\bar{t}}$$ t t ¯ plus missing transverse momentum final state is presented. The analysis of 139  $$\hbox {fb}^{-1}$$ fb - 1 of $${\sqrt{s}=13}$$ s = 13  TeV proton–proton collision data collected using the ATLAS detector at the LHC yields no significant excess over the Standard Model background expectation. To interpret the results, a supersymmetric model is used where the top squark decays via $${\tilde{t}} \rightarrow t^{(*)} {\tilde{\chi }}^0_1$$ t ~ → t ( ∗ ) χmore »~ 1 0 , with $$t^{(*)}$$ t ( ∗ ) denoting an on-shell (off-shell) top quark and $${\tilde{\chi }}^0_1$$ χ ~ 1 0 the lightest neutralino. Three specific event selections are optimised for the following scenarios. In the scenario where $$m_{{\tilde{t}}}> m_t+m_{{\tilde{\chi }}^0_1}$$ m t ~ > m t + m χ ~ 1 0 , top squark masses are excluded in the range 400–1250 GeV for $${\tilde{\chi }}^0_1$$ χ ~ 1 0 masses below 200 GeV at 95% confidence level. In the situation where $$m_{{\tilde{t}}}\sim m_t+m_{{\tilde{\chi }}^0_1}$$ m t ~ ∼ m t + m χ ~ 1 0 , top squark masses in the range 300–630 GeV are excluded, while in the case where $$m_{{\tilde{t}}}< m_W+m_b+m_{{\tilde{\chi }}^0_1}$$ m t ~ < m W + m b + m χ ~ 1 0 (with $$m_{{\tilde{t}}}-m_{{\tilde{\chi }}^0_1}\ge 5$$ m t ~ - m χ ~ 1 0 ≥ 5  GeV), considered for the first time in an ATLAS all-hadronic search, top squark masses in the range 300–660 GeV are excluded. Limits are also set for scalar third-generation up-type leptoquarks, excluding leptoquarks with masses below 1240 GeV when considering only leptoquark decays into a top quark and a neutrino.« less
