Abstract / Description of output

A search for chargino–neutralino pair production in three-lepton final states with missing transverse momentum is presented. The study is based on a dataset of s=13s ​=13 TeV pp collisions recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 139 fb−1fb−1. No significant excess relative to the Standard Model predictions is found in data. The results are interpreted in simplified models of supersymmetry, and statistically combined with results from a previous ATLAS search for compressed spectra in two-lepton final states. Various scenarios for the production and decay of charginos (χ~1±χ~​1±​) and neutralinos (χ~20χ~​20​) are considered. For pure higgsino χ~1±χ~20χ~​1±​χ~​20​ pair-production scenarios, exclusion limits at 95% confidence level are set on χ~20χ~​20​ masses up to 210 GeV. Limits are also set for pure wino χ~1±χ~20χ~​1±​χ~​20​ pair production, on χ~20χ~​20​ masses up to 640 GeV for decays via on-shell W and Z bosons, up to 300 GeV for decays via off-shell W and Z bosons, and up to 190 GeV for decays via W and Standard Model Higgs bosons.
