Top quark physics is crucial for establishing Standard Model physics in the commissioning phase of ATLAS. Also, due to its large mass, the top quark will be sensitive to new physics involved in the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism. Current project involve measuring the top pair cross section using early data (~100pb-1).

We are investigating the physics potential of inclusive supersymmetric signatures and the effect of the inclusive selection on some of the Standard Model backgrounds, with particular regard to the W+jets and Z+jets processes. We are also working on the search for a tri-lepton signature from chargino and neutralino decays.

A good understanding of parton densities is vital at a proton-proton collider like the LHC. We are developing alternative techniques for quantifying the effect of uncertainties in parton densities based on a Bayesian approach.

Exotic searches

We are interested in looking for exotic phenomena like for example for signs of extra dimensions, which could provide an explanation for the weakness of gravity. Current projects involve looking for a graviton in the 4 lepton channel (G->ZZ->4l).

ATLAS Physics Studies at RHUL

  • Higgs Searches

ALEPH_evtdisplay.jpg

We are working on the detection and measurement of the properties of light Higgs boson signals predicted in the context of various models. Past projects include the determination of the CP-parity of a Higgs particle using the ttH (H->γγ) channel, and the detection of an invisible Higgs produced in association with a pair of top quarks. Current projects have focused on the ttH (H->WW) signature. We are also involved in the ATLAS Statistics Committee which, among other things, provides guidance for the combination of various Higgs analyses, with the aim of maximizing an early Higgs discovery.
