Description

Searches for new resonances whose decays contain top quarks and/or b-quarks cover a wide range of beyond the Standard Model (SM) physics, such as generic heavy vector resonances or vector like quarks. These searches offer great potential to reduce SM backgrounds but also significant challenges in reconstructing and identifying the decay products as well as modelling the remaining background. The results of recent ATLAS searches on 13 TeV pp data, along with the associated improvements in identification techniques, will be reported.
