BPHYConference noteBs to J/psi phi Run-2Full Title: Measurement of the CP violation phase $\phi_{s}$ in $B_{s} \rightarrow J/\psi \phi$ decay in ATLAS at 13 TeV

Abstract: A measurement of the $B_{s}$ decay parameters using 80.5 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity collected by the ATLAS detector from $13$ TeV $pp$ collisions at the LHC is presented. The measured parameters include the CP-violating phase $\phi_{s}$, the decay width $\Gamma_{s}$ and the width difference $\Delta\Gamma_{s}$ between the $B_{s}$ meson mass eigenstates. The values measured for the physical parameters are statistically combined with those from 19.2 fb$^{-1}$ of 7 TeV and 8 TeV data, leading to the following: $\phi_{s}=-0.076\pm 0.034$ (stat.) $\pm 0.019$ (syst.) rad, $\Delta\Gamma_{s } = 0.068 \pm 0.004$ (stat.) $\pm 0.002$ (syst.) ps$^{-1}$, $\Gamma_{s } = 0.669 \pm 0.001$ (stat.) $\pm 0.001$ (syst.) ps$^{-1}$. Results for $\phi_{s}$ and $\Delta\Gamma_{s}$ are also presented as 68% likelihood contours in the $\phi_{s}$--$\Delta\Gamma_{s}$ plane. The transversity amplitudes and corresponding strong phases are also measured in this decay channel. All measurements are in agreement with the Standard Model predictions.

EGAMPaperATLAS electron and photon reconstruction and energy calibration with 2015-2017 data   Full Title: Electron and photon performance measurements with the ATLAS detector using the 2015--2017 LHC proton--proton collision data

Abstract: This paper describes the reconstruction of electrons and photons with the ATLAS detector, as employed for measurements and searches exploiting the complete LHC Run 2 dataset. An improved energy clustering algorithm is introduced, and its implications for the measurement and identification of electrons and photons are discussed in detail. Corrections and calibrations that affect performance, including energy calibration, identification and isolation efficiencies, and the measurement of the charge of reconstructed electron candidates are determined using up to 81 fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton collision data collected at $\sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV between 2015 and 2017.

EXOTPaperHeavy Neutrino search in boosted topologyFull Title: Search for a right-handed gauge boson decaying into a high-momentum heavy neutrino and a charged lepton in $pp$ collisions with the ATLAS detector at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV

Abstract: A search for a right-handed gauge boson $W_{\mathrm{R}}$, decaying into a boosted right-handed heavy neutrino $N_{\mathrm{R}}$, in the framework of Left-Right Symmetric Models is presented. It is based on data from proton-proton collisions with a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV collected by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider during the years 2015, 2016 and 2017, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 80 fb$^{-1}$. The search is performed separately for electrons and muons in the final state. A distinguishing feature of the search is the use of large-radius jets containing electrons. Selections based on the signal topology result in smaller background compared with to expected signal. No significant deviation from the Standard Model prediction is observed and lower limits are set in the $W_{\mathrm{R}}$ and $N_{\mathrm{R}}$ mass plane. Mass values of the $W_{\mathrm{R}}$ smaller than 3.8-5 TeV are excluded for $N_{\mathrm{R}}$ in the mass range 0.1-1.8 TeV.

EXOTPaperResolved low mass dijet resonance search with ISRFull Title: Search for low-mass resonances decaying into two jets and produced in association with a photon using $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s } = 13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A search is performed for localised excesses in dijet mass distributions of low-dijet-mass events produced in association with a high transverse energy photon. The search uses up to 79.8 fb$^{-1}$ of LHC proton-proton collisions collected by the ATLAS experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV during 2015-2017. Two variants are presented: one which makes no jet flavour requirements and one which requires both jets to be tagged as $b$-jets. The observed mass distributions are consistent with multi-jet processes in the Standard Model. The data are used to set upper limits on the production cross-section for a benchmark $Z^\prime$ model and, separately, on generic Gaussian-shape contributions to the mass distributions, extending the current ATLAS constraints on dijet resonances to the mass range between 225 and 1100 GeV.

EXOTConference noteLow mass boosted di-b-jet resonances with an extra jetFull Title: Search for boosted resonances decaying to two b-quarks and produced in association with a jet at $\sqrt{s } = 13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A search for new resonances decaying into a pair of bottom quarks in the merged regime is reported using an integrated luminosity of 80.5~\ifb of proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. For the resonance to be merged, an extra jet with high transverse momentum is required. The mass range from 70 to 230 GeV is inspected. For the Standard Model Higgs boson, the observed signal strength is $\mu_{H } = 5.8 \pm 3.1~\text{(stat.)}~\pm1.9~\text{(syst.)}~\pm 1.7~\text{(th.)}$, consistent with the background-only hypothesis at $1.6$ standard deviations. No evidence of a significant excess of events beyond the expected background is found and limits on leptophobic $Z^\prime$ bosons with democratic axial couplings to all quark generations are set in the probed mass range.

EXOTConference noteMET + H search with H to bbFull Title: Search for Dark Matter Produced in Association with a Higgs Boson Decaying to $b\bar{b}$ at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the ATLAS Detector using 79.8 fb$^{-1}$ of pp collisions

Abstract: A search for dark matter produced in association with a Higgs boson decaying to $b$-quarks is performed using $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}= 13\,$TeV. The dataset has an integrated luminosity of 79.8$\,$fb$^{-1}$ and was recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. Selected collision events comprise large missing transverse momentum and either two $b$-tagged small radius jets or a single large radius jet containing two $b$-tagged subjets. The reconstruction of these subjets is based on a jet algorithm that uses inner detector tracks as inputs and a radius parameter that decreases as the subjet transverse momentum increases. The observed data are in agreement with the Standard Model predictions. The results are interpreted in the context of a simplified model ($Z^{\prime}$-2HDM) which describes the interaction of dark matter and Standard Model particles via new heavy mediator particles. Masses of the $Z^{\prime}$ are excluded up to $2.8\,$TeV depending on the choices for other model parameters.

EXOTConference noteSingle VLQ search B->bH(gg)Full Title: Search for single vector-like B quarks decaying to a Higgs boson and a bottom quark with the Higgs decaying to a pair of photons

Abstract: A search is presented for single production of a vector-like $B$ quark that decays into a Higgs boson and a $b$ quark. The search uses a dataset corresponding to 79.8 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV collected during 2015-2017 with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The analysis focuses on the presence of a Higgs boson that decays into two photons, a high-momentum $b$-jet and a forward jet, characteristic of $t$-channel production of the signal process. The main background process is non-resonant diphoton production, with additional small contributions from Standard Model processes containing $H\rightarrow\gamma\gamma$ decays. No significant excess above the background expectation is observed, and upper limits on the signal production cross section are set as a function of the $B$-quark mass. Assuming a generalized coupling $\kappa_B = 0.5$ and doublet branching ratios of 50% for $B\rightarrow Hb$ and $B\rightarrow Zb$, $B$ quarks with masses less than 1210 GeV are excluded at the 95% confidence level.

EXOTConference noteSearch for type-III Seesaw heavy leptonsFull Title: Search for type-III seesaw heavy leptons in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A search for the pair production of heavy leptons ($N^0$, $L^\pm$) as predicted by the type-III seesaw mechanism is presented. The search uses proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV corresponding to 79.8 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity recorded in 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The analysis focuses on the $N^0$ and $L^\pm$ decays with intermediate $W$ bosons and yielding two final-state light leptons (electron or muon) of different flavor and charge combinations, with at least two jets and large missing transverse momentum in the final state. The search is optimized in six channels distinguished by the flavor combination and charge product of the final state lepton pair, where same charge or opposite charge final states are considered. Good agreement is observed between the number of events in data and Standard Model predictions. The results are translated into exclusion limits on heavy lepton $m(N^0, L^\pm)$ masses, where $N^0$ and $L^\pm$ are considered mass-degenerate. The observed lower 95 % confidence level limit on the mass of the type-III seesaw heavy leptons, where the branching fractions to all lepton flavors are assumed to be equal, is 560 GeV.

EXOTConference noteDijet resonance search in events with leptonsFull Title: Search for resonances in the di-jet mass distribution in events with identified leptons in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A search for dijet resonances in events with identified leptons is performed using $79.8~{\text{fb}}^{-1}$ of $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV proton-proton collision data recorded by the ATLAS detector. Dijet invariant mass distributions ranging from $0.22-6.3$ TeV in events with at least one isolated lepton ($e$ or $\mu$) are searched for excesses above background expectations. Selecting events based on the presence of a lepton can probe lower $m_{jj}$ than traditional inclusive dijet searches and targets a large range of new physics models with a final-state lepton. Signatures of such processes include associated production of a $W$ or $Z$ boson. No statistically significant deviation from the background hypothesis is found. In the absence of signals indicating the presence of new physics, limits are calculated based on generic Gaussian signals with a width ranging from that determined by the detector resolution to $15\%$ of the resonance mass. Contributions from a signal with effective cross-section ranging from $50$ fb to $0.1$ fb are excluded in the mass range between 0.25 TeV and 6 TeV.

EXOTConference noteSearch for a resonance in the lepton + MET final stateFull Title: Search for a new heavy gauge boson resonance decaying into a lepton and missing transverse momentum in 80 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s } = 13$ TeV with the ATLAS experiment

Abstract: The results of a search for a new heavy, charged $W^\prime$ boson decaying into an electron or muon and a neutrino using proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s } = 13$ TeV are presented. The data were collected in 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 79.8 fb$^{-1}$. As no excess of events above the Standard Model prediction is observed, the results are used to set upper limits on the $W^\prime$ boson cross-section times branching ratio to an electron or muon and a neutrino as a function of the $W^\prime$ mass. Assuming a $W^\prime$ boson with the same couplings as the Standard Model $W$ boson, $W^\prime$ masses below 5.6 TeV are excluded at the 95\% confidence level.

FTAGPaperATLAS b-jet identification performance and efficiency measurement with tt events in pp collisions at 13 TeV Full Title: ATLAS $b$-jet identification performance and efficiency measurement with $t\bar{t}$ events in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV

Abstract: The algorithms used by the ATLAS Collaboration during Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider to identify jets containing $b$-hadrons are presented. The performance of the algorithms is evaluated in the simulation and the efficiency with which these algorithms identify jets containing $b$-hadrons is measured in collision data. The measurement uses a likelihood-based method in a sample of highly enriched in $t\bar{t}$ events. The topology of the $t \to W b$ decays is exploited to simultaneously measure both the jet flavour composition of the sample and the efficiency in a transverse momentum range from 20 GeV to 600 GeV. The efficiency measurement is subsequently compared with that predicted by the simulation. The data used in this measurement, corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 80.5 fb$^{-1}$, were collected in proton-proton collisions during the years 2015 to 2017 at a centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV. By simultaneously extracting both the efficiency and jet flavour composition, this measurement significantly improves the precision compared to previous results, with uncertainties ranging from 1% to 8% depending on the jet transverse momentum.

HIGGConference noteH(125) combination cross-sections, couplingsFull Title: Combined measurements of Higgs boson production and decay using up to $80$ fb$^{-1}$ of proton--proton collision data at $\sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV collected with the ATLAS experiment

Abstract: Combined measurements of Higgs boson production cross sections and branching fractions are presented. The combination is based on the analyses of the Higgs boson decay modes $H \to \gamma\gamma$, $ZZ^\ast$, $WW^\ast$, $\tau\tau$, $b\bar{b}$, $\mu\mu$, searches for decays into invisible final states, and on measurements of off-shell Higgs boson production. Up to $79.8$ fb$^{-1}$ of proton--proton collision data collected at $\sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector are used. Results are presented for the gluon fusion and vector-boson fusion processes, and for associated production with vector bosons or top quarks. The combined measurement yields an observed (expected) significance for the vector-boson fusion production process of $6.5\sigma$ ($5.3\sigma$). This single-experiment observation follows an earlier observation in the combination of ATLAS and CMS measurements. Measurements in kinematic regions defined within the simplified template cross section framework are also shown. The results are interpreted in terms of modifiers applied to the Standard Model couplings of the Higgs boson to other particles, and are used to set exclusion limits on parameters in two Higgs doublet models and in the simplified Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. No significant deviations from Standard Model predictions are observed.

Abstract: Cross-sections of associated production of a Higgs boson decaying into bottom-quark pairs and an electroweak gauge boson, $W$ or $Z$, decaying into leptons are measured as a function of the gauge boson transverse momentum. The measurements are performed in kinematic fiducial volumes defined in the `simplified template cross-section framework. The results are obtained using 79.8 fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton collisions recorded by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. All measurements are found to be in agreement with the Standard Model predictions, and limits are set on the parameters of an effective Lagrangian sensitive to modifications of the Higgs boson couplings to the electroweak gauge bosons.

HIGGPaperObservation of H->bb and VH productionFull Title: Observation of $H \rightarrow b\bar{b}$ decays and $VH$ production with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A search for the decay of the Standard Model Higgs boson into a $b\bar{b}$ pair when produced in association with a $W$ or $Z$ boson is performed with the ATLAS detector. The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 79.8 $\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ were collected in proton-proton collisions during Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. For a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV, an excess of events over the expected background from other Standard Model processes is found with an observed (expected) significance of 4.9 (4.3) standard deviations. A combination with the results from other searches in Run 1 and in Run 2 for the Higgs boson in the $b\bar{b}$ decay mode is performed, which yields an observed (expected) significance of 5.4 (5.5) standard deviations, thus providing direct observation of the Higgs boson decay into $b$-quarks. The ratio of the measured event yield for a Higgs boson decaying into $b\bar{b}$ to the Standard Model expectation is $1.01 \pm 0.12 \mathrm{(stat.)} ^{+0.16}_{-0.15} \mathrm{(syst.)}$. Additionally, a combination of Run 2 results searching for the Higgs boson produced in association with a vector boson yields an observed (expected) significance of 5.3 (4.8) standard deviations.

HIGGConference noteH(125) combination STXS and couplingsFull Title: ATLAS Combined Higgs Boson Measurements with 2015-2017 data at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV

Abstract: Combined measurements of Higgs boson production cross-sections, branching fractions and couplings are presented in the Higgs boson decay channels into $\gamma\gamma$, $ZZ^*$, $WW^*$, $\tau\tau$, $\mu\mu$ and $b\bar{b}$, using up to $79.8$ fb$^{-1}$ of proton--proton collision data at $\sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV collected with the ATLAS experiment. Results are presented for the gluon-gluon fusion and vector-boson fusion processes, and associated production with vector bosons or top quarks. The combined measurement yields an observed (expected) significance for the vector-boson fusion production process of $6.5\sigma$ ($5.3\sigma$). This single-experiment observation follows an earlier observation in the combination of ATLAS and CMS measurements. The results are interpreted in terms of modifiers applied to the Standard Model couplings of the Higgs boson to other particles, and are used to set exclusion limits on new phenomena. No significant deviations from Standard Model predictions are observed.

Abstract: This note reports measurements of Higgs boson properties in the two-photon final state using 79.8 fb$^{-1}$ of data recorded at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The cross sections of Higgs boson production through gluon--gluon fusion, vector-boson fusion, and in association with a vector boson or a top-quark pair are measured. Measurements of the Higgs boson production divided further into kinematic regions, called simplified template cross sections, are also reported. Additionally, the cross section for the production of the Higgs boson decaying to two isolated photons is measured in a fiducial phase space designed to closely match the ATLAS detector acceptance, and is found to be 60.4 $\pm$ 6.1 (stat.) $\pm$ 6.0 (exp.) $\pm$ 0.3 (theo.) fb, in agreement with the Standard Model prediction of 63.5 $\pm$ 3.3 fb. Finally, the fiducial cross section is measured differentially in bins of several kinematic observables with sensitivity to properties of the Higgs boson. Among these, the number of $b$-jets produced in association with the Higgs boson is measured to probe Higgs production in association with heavy flavor hadrons. No significant deviations between the observed data and the Standard Model prediction are observed.

No significant excess is observed above the expected background. The observed upper limit on the cross section times branching ratio is $2.1$ times the Standard Model prediction at $95$\% confidence level for a Higgs boson mass of $125$ GeV, while the expected limit in the absence of a $H \to \mu\mu$ signal was $2.0$. The measured signal strength, defined as the ratio of the observed signal yield to the one expected in the Standard Model, is $\mu = 0.1 ^{+1.0}_{-1.1}$.

Abstract: The observation of Higgs boson production in association with a top quark pair ($t\bar{t}H$), based on the analysis of proton--proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider, is presented. Using data corresponding to integrated luminosities of up to 79.8 fb$^{-1}$, and considering Higgs boson decays into $b\bar{b}$, $WW^*$, $\tau\tau$, $\gamma\gamma$, and $ZZ^*$, the observed significance is 5.8 standard deviations, compared to an expectation of 4.9 standard deviations. Combined with the $t\bar{t}H$ searches using a dataset corresponding to integrated luminosities of 4.5 fb$^{-1}$ at 7 TeV and 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ at 8 TeV, the observed (expected) significance is 6.3 (5.1) standard deviations. Assuming Standard Model branching fractions, the total $t\bar{t}H$ production cross section at 13 TeV is measured to be 670 $\pm$ 90 (stat.) $^{+110}_{-100}$ (syst.) fb, in agreement with the Standard Model prediction.

Abstract: Inclusive, differential and production mode cross sections of the Higgs boson production in proton-proton collisions are measured in the $H \to ZZ^{*} \to 4\ell$ decay channel. The proton$-$proton collision data were produced at the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV and recorded by the ATLAS detector from 2015 to 2017, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 79.8 fb$^{-1}$. The inclusive fiducial cross section for the process $H \to ZZ^{*} \to 4\ell$ is measured to be $\sigma_\mathrm{fid } = 4.04 \pm 0.47$ fb, while the Standard Model prediction is $\sigma_\mathrm{fid, SM } = 3.35 \pm 0.15 $ fb. The cross-section times $H \to ZZ^{*}$ branching ratio for gluon fusion and vector-boson fusion production are measured to be $1.21 \pm 0.18$ pb and $0.24 \pm 0.09$ pb, respectively. All measurements are in agreement with the Standard Model prediction.

STDMPaperEvidence for WVV production at 13 TeVFull Title: Evidence for the production of three massive vector bosons with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A search for the production of three massive vector bosons in proton-proton collisions is performed using data at $\sqrt{s } = 13$ TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider in the years 2015-2017, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $79.8$ fb$^{-1}$. Events with two same-sign leptons $\ell$ (electrons or muons) and at least two reconstructed jets are selected to search for $WWW \to \ell \nu \ell \nu qq$. Events with three leptons without any same-flavour opposite-sign lepton pairs are used to search for $WWW \to \ell \nu \ell\nu \ell \nu$, while events with three leptons and at least one same-flavour opposite-sign lepton pair and one or more reconstructed jets are used to search for $WWZ \to \ell \nu qq \ell \ell$. Finally, events with four leptons are analysed to search for $WWZ \to \ell \nu \ell \nu \ell \ell$ and $WZZ \to qq \ell \ell \ell \ell$. Evidence for the joint production of three massive vector bosons is observed with a significance of 4.0 standard deviations, where the expectation is 3.1 standard deviations.

SUSYConference noteChargino pair; 2 leptonFull Title: Search for direct chargino pair production with W -boson mediated decays in events with two leptons and missing transverse momentum in the final state at $\sqrt{s } = 13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: The results of a search for the direct pair production of charginos decaying via W-bosons are reported using 80.5 fb-1 of integrated luminosity from LHC $pp$ collisions at 13 TeV collected by the ATLAS detector in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 data taking campaigns. Charginos are searched for in final states with two isolated leptons (electron or muon), missing transverse momentum and at most one light jet in the final state. No excess above Standard Model expectations is observed. Exclusion limits are derived on the chargino mass assuming a simplified model in which it decays with a 100% branching ratio to an on-shell W-boson and the lightest neutralino: $\tilde{\chi}_1^\pm \rightarrow W^\pm \tilde{\chi}_1^{0}$. For a massless neutralino, chargino masses up to 410~GeV are excluded at 95% confidence level.

It uses LHC proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s } = 13$ TeV with an integrated luminosity of 79.9 fb$^{-1}$ collected with the ATLAS detector from 2015 to 2017. The search is performed in events containing large missing transverse momentum and several energetic jets, at least three of which must be identified as originating from $b$-quarks. No excess is found above the predicted background. For $\displaystyle\tilde\chi^0_1$ masses below approximately 800 GeV, gluino masses of less than 2.23 TeV (2.19) TeV are excluded at 95 % confidence level in simplified models involving the pair production of gluinos that decay via top (bottom) squarks. An interpretation of the limits in terms of the branching ratios of the gluinos into third-generation squarks is also provided.

SUSYConference noteSbottom; b-jetsFull Title: Search for bottom-squark pair production with the ATLAS detector in final states containing Higgs bosons, b-jets and ETMiss in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=13 TeV

Abstract: The result of a search for the production of the supersymmetric partner of the bottom-quark ($\tilde{b}_{1}$) using $79.8\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ of data collected at $\sqrt{s } = 13\,\mathrm{TeV}$ by the ATLAS detector in Run 2 is reported. In the supersymmetric scenarios considered the bottom-squarks decay to a $b$-quark and the second lightest neutralino, $\tilde{b}_{1} \rightarrow b + \tilde{\chi}^{0}_{2}$. The $\tilde{\chi}^{0}_{2}$ is assumed to subsequently decay with $100\%$ branching ratio to the Standard-Model-like Higgs boson ($h$) and the lightest neutralino: $\tilde{\chi}^{0}_{2} \rightarrow h + \tilde{\chi}^{0}_{1}$. The $\tilde{\chi}^{0}_{1}$ is assumed to be the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) and is stable. Two signal mass configurations are targeted: the first has a constant LSP mass of $60\,\mathrm{GeV}$; and the second has a constant mass difference between the $\tilde{\chi}^{0}_{2}$ and $\tilde{\chi}^{0}_{1}$ of $130\,\mathrm{GeV}$. The final states considered contain zero leptons, three or more $b$-jets, and large missing transverse momentum. No significant excess of events over the Standard Model background expectation is observed in any of the signal regions considered. Limits at the $95\%$ confidence level are placed in the simplified models considered, and bottom-squarks with mass up to $1400\,\mathrm{GeV}$ are excluded.

SUSYConference noteZh, h>neutralinos; photonsFull Title: Search for Standard Model Higgs boson decays to at least one photon and missing transverse momentum using 80 fb$^{-1}$ of proton--proton collisions collected at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A search for Standard Model Higgs bosons decaying into at least one photon and missing transverse momentum is performed using 79.8 fb$^{-1}$ of proton–proton collisions collected at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector, where the photon can arise from a neutralino decaying into a gravitino. Higgs bosons produced in association with a $Z$ boson are considered in order to reduce the number of background events. No excess with respect to the Standard Model prediction is observed. Assuming a Standard Model $Zh$ production cross-section, the branching fraction of a Higgs boson to neutralinos or neutralino/gravitino is constrained to be less than 5–11% at the 95% confidence level for near massless gravitinos.

TOPQConference noteSearch for charged lepton flavour violation in top quark decaysFull Title: Search for charged lepton flavour violation in top quark decays at the LHC with the ATLAS detector

Abstract: A direct search for charged lepton-flavour violation in top-quark decays is presented. The data analysed correspond to 79.8 $\text{fb}^{-1}$ of proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}= 13$ TeV delivered by the LHC. The process studied is the production of top-quark pairs, where one top quark decays into a pair of opposite-sign different-flavour charged leptons and an up-type quark, while the other decays semileptonically according to the Standard Model. The signature of the signal is thus characterised by the presence of three charged leptons, a light jet and a $b$-jet. A multivariate discriminant is deployed and its distribution used as input to extract the signal strength. In the absence of a signal, an upper limit on the branching ratio of ${\cal B}(t \to \ell \ell q) < 1.86 \times 10^{-5}$ is set at 95% confidence level.
