The ATLAS Collaboration has performed precision measurements
of the transverse momentum of the Z/gamma* boson and the angular
correlations of the Drell–Yan lepton pairs with the phi* observable,
in different di-lepton invariant mass and rapidity regions. These
measurements are sensitive to soft resummation effects and hard jet
emissions for small and large momentum transfers,...

The WW production cross-section measured at the LHC has been consistently exhibiting a mild excess beyond the SM prediction leading to speculations that new physics could be hiding in these measurements. In this talk, I discuss a possible explanation of the excess in terms of large logarithms that arise from a jet-veto condition that is imposed in the experimental analyses to reduce...

Direct photons are very interesting probes because they are not modified once created and emitted during all stages of the collisions.
Especially soft photons have been actively measured to study the hot and dense medium (QGP) created in high energy heavy ion collisions.
It is expected that direct photons have different angular emission patterns depending on their production...

Recent results on electroweak probes in lead-lead and
proton-lead collisions from the ATLAS Detector at the LHC
Abstract: Photons and weak bosons do not interact strongly with the
dense and hot medium formed in the nuclei collisions, thus should be
sensitive to the nuclear modification of parton distribution functions
(nPDFs). In particular, proton-lead collisions provide an...

Bose-Einstein correlations provide a unique opportunity for
detailed understanding of the space-time geometry of the hadronization
region, for determining the size and shape of the source from which
particles are emitted and for interpreting of quark confinement
effects. Bose-Einstein correlation lead to an enhancement of the
production of identical bosons close in phase space. The...

Two-particle, quantum-statistical (Bose-Einstein) correlations are measured with the CMS experiment in pp collisions at 0.9, 2.76 and 7 TeV center-of-mass energies, as well as in pPb and peripheral PbPb collisions, respectively at 5.02 and 2.76 TeV center-of-mass energy per nucleon. The analysis is performed as a function of both the charged particle multiplicity and the average transverse...

Measurements of soft particle production have provided
valuable insight on properties of the evolution of the quark-gluon
plasma in Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC. In particular, measurements of
flow harmonics using the azimuthal angle distributions of low-pT
particles directly test hydrodynamic model descriptions of its
evolution. The large acceptance of the ATLAS detector enables...

A measurement of the underlying event activity in pp collisions is performed using events with a leading charged particle jet produced at central pseudorapidities and of transverse momentum in the range of 1 to 100 GeV. The underlying event activity is measured independently in the two halves of the transverse region with the maximum as well as minimum activities. The results obtained from pp...

Double parton scattering is measured in different channels using the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. Data from pp collisions collected at 7 and 8 TeV center-of-mass energy are used. Several final states are investigated to identify and measure the signature of double parton scattering in inelastic events. Parameters are extracted from the data that are suited in an optimal way to distinguish...

Several measurements of QCD jets are presented as performed at different center-of-mass energies with the CMS experiment. By extending the measurement into the forward phase space and also towards low-pT the sensitivity to new features of QCD is maximised. The simultaneous observation of several jets in the same event is exploited to study for example the angular correlations of Mueller...

We discuss the subject of matching the NLO QCD corrections to the parton shower for processes mediated by coloured resonances. In order to perform precise realistic simulations of the production of resonances their decay must be included. In current frameworks for NLO+PS simulations, however, problems arise when generating the radiation from the decay of the resonance, especially for narrow...

The determination of theoretical error estimates and PDF/$\alpha_s$-fits require
fast evaluations of differential cross sections for varied QCD input parameters.
These include PDFs, the strong coupling constant $\alpha_S$
and the renormalization and factorization scales.
Beyond leading order QCD, a full dedicated calculation for each set of parameters
is often too time-consuming,...

We use an extension of the Britto-Cachazo-Feng-Witten (BCFW) recursion relation to evaluate analytically tree-level 5-point matrix elements of two fermions and three gluons with one of the partons off the mass-shell, while preserving gauge invariance.
These amplitudes find their domain of application within the high-energy factorisation (or TMD-factorisation) framework, which requires...

The agreement between the theoretical predictions and the data exhibited continues to be encouraging.

The measurements of the production cross sections of inclusive, di- and tri-jet events probe the dynamics of QCD and can constrain the parton proton structure. Double-differential cross sections are measured and compared to expectations based on next-to-leading order QCD calculations as well as to next-to-leading order Monte Carlo simulations. The study of di-jet systems with a veto on...

We calculate non-global logarithms at finite $N_c$ for the hemisphere mass distribution in $e^+e^-\to q \bar{q}$ at single logarithmic accuracy up to fifth order in the coupling constant. Our results indicate the possibility of resummation of these logarithms to all orders into an exponential form. We compare our findings to those reported in the literature at large $N_c$ and find agreement....

Event shape observables are essential tools for studying the behaviour of high energy QCD. Yet in the region where soft and collinear gluon emission is most dominant, standard perturbation theory is rendered unreliable and the series must be resummed to all orders in the strong coupling. We have recently developed a general method for the resummation of event shapes, in e+e- annihilation, at...
