Searches for exotic Higgs bosons at ATLAS and CMS 53rd Rencontres de Moriond 2018: QCD and High Energy Interactions, Moriond 2018, Meeting locationLa Thuile, Italy, 17 Mar 2018 - 24 Mar 2018   OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); External link: Fulltext 2018-03-1909:19 [PUBDB-2018-01500] Preprint/Report Wichmann, K. QCD analysis of the ATLAS and CMS $\mathrm{W^{\pm}}$ and $Z$ cross-section measurements and implications for the strange sea density [DESY-18-021; arXiv:1803.00968]   In the present paper, the ATLAS inclusive $W^{\pm}$ and $Z$ boson production data are analysed together with the CMS inclusive $W^{\pm}$ and $Z$ boson production data to investigate any possible tensions between the data sets and to determine the strange sea fraction, within the framework of a parton distribution function fit at next-to-next-to leading order in perturbative QCD..

Measurement of the fiducial differential Higgs cross-section with respect to pT using the diphoton decay channel atps = 8TeV with ATLAS 191 pp. (2018) [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-01172] = Dissertation, University of Hamburg, 2017   AbstractThis thesis presents a measurement of the fiducial differential cross-section with respect to pT of Higgs boson production, using the diphoton decay channel. Theanalysis uses 20:3 fb-1 of proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8TeV taken with the ATLAS detector in the year 2012.

This new technique allows for improved meas-urements of electron and photon energies, particularly in situations where an electron radiatesa bremsstrahlung photon, or a photon converts to an electron-positron pair.

Measurements of top-quark properties at 8 TeV using the ATLAS detector at the LHC 229 pp. (2017) [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-00689] = Dissertation, Bergische Universität Wuppertal, 2017   This work presents the measurements of the charge asymmetry and top quark spin observables in ttbar events based on 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ of $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV proton--proton collisions recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. These analyses are performed in the dilepton final state, characterized by the presence of two isolated leptons (electrons or muons).

These final states provide sensitivity to the heavy-flavour content of the proton and aspects related to the modelling of heavy-flavour quarks in perturbative QCD.

Final states containing third-generation quarks and missing transverse momentum are considered.

The new inner tracker will have to handle a significant increase in luminosity while maintaining a sufficient signal-to-noise ratio and pulse shaping times.

The ATLAS collaboration has carried out a range of measurements related with two-photon interactions at high energies using recently recorded Pb+Pb collision data taken at sNN=5.02 TeV ..

The heavy-quark matching scale $μ_m$ determines at which energy scale $μ$ the QCD theory transitions from NF to $N_{F}+1$ in the variable flavor number scheme (VFNS) for the evolution of the parton distribution functions (PDFs) and strong coupling $\alpha_{S}(μ)$.
