Measurements of top-quark pair differential cross-sections in the \(e\mu \) channel in pp collisions at \(\sqrt{s} = 13\) TeV using the ATLAS detector

This article presents measurements of \(t\bar{t}\) differential cross-sections in a fiducial phase-space region, using an integrated luminosity of 3.2 fb\(^{-1}\) of proton–proton data at a centre-of-mass energy of \(\sqrt{s} = 13\) TeV recorded by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in 2015. Differential cross-sections are measured as a function of the transverse momentum and absolute ...

Performance of the ATLAS trigger system in 2015

During 2015 the ATLAS experiment recorded \(3.8\,{\mathrm{fb}}^{-1}\) of proton–proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of \(13\,{\mathrm{TeV}}\). The ATLAS trigger system is a crucial component of the experiment, responsible for selecting events of interest at a recording rate of approximately 1 kHz from up to 40 MHz of collisions. This paper presents a short overview of ...

Reconstruction of primary vertices at the ATLAS experiment in Run 1 proton–proton collisions at the LHC

This paper presents the method and performance of primary vertex reconstruction in proton–proton collision data recorded by the ATLAS experiment during Run 1 of the LHC. The studies presented focus on data taken during 2012 at a centre-of-mass energy of \(\sqrt{s} = 8\) TeV.

Performance of algorithms that reconstruct missing transverse momentum in \(\sqrt{s}\) = 8 TeV proton–proton collisions in the ATLAS detector

The reconstruction and calibration algorithms used to calculate missing transverse momentum (\(E_{\text {T}}^{\text {miss}}\) ) with the ATLAS detector exploit energy deposits in the calorimeter and tracks reconstructed in the inner detector as well as the muon spectrometer. Various strategies are used to suppress effects arising from additional proton–proton interactions, called ...
