Description
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world largest proton-proton
collider situated at the European high energy physics laboratory (CERN).
After a first data taking run in the period from 2011 to 2013, during
which the Higgs boson was discovered, the LHC entered a new territory in
2015, when its centre-of-mass collision energy was raised from 8 to 13
TeV and intensive data production strategies were adopted, including a
fine tuning of the specific luminosity. A large data set was collected,
exceeding the most optimistic expectations and enabling a very large
panel of measurements. A selection of the most recent results obtained
by the ATLAS experiment will be presented, including precise tests of
the electroweak sector, quantum chromodynamics investigations and
intensive searches for new physics at the energy frontier.
