Overview

abstract

  • The results of a search for new heavy ; ; W; '; ; bosons decaying to an electron or muon and a neutrino using proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of ; ; ; s; ; ; =; ; 13; ;  TeV are presented. The dataset was collected in 2015 and 2016 by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 36.1  ; ; ; fb; ; ; ; -; 1; ; ; ; . As no excess of events above the Standard Model prediction is observed, the results are used to set upper limits on the ; ; W; '; ; boson cross-section times branching ratio to an electron or muon and a neutrino as a function of the ; ; W; '; ; mass. Assuming a ; ; W; '; ; boson with the same couplings as the Standard Model W boson, ; ; W; '; ; masses below 5.1 TeV are excluded at the 95% confidence level.
