Searches for the Z decay mode of the Higgs boson and for new high-mass resonances in pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector

This article presents searches for the Z decay of the Higgs boson and for narrow high-mass resonances decaying to Zγ, exploiting Z boson decays to pairs of electrons or muons. The data analysis uses 36.1 fb-1 of pp collisions at √s = 13 recorded by the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collide...
