The ATLAS Trigger System

Rhys Owen (University of Birmingham)


The ATLAS experiment employs a complex trigger system to enable the collaborations physics program. The LHC is now well in to its second running period delivering proton proton collisions at sqrt(s)=13 TeV with high instantaneous luminosity. This talk will describe the two-level hardware and software trigger used to select events in this environment including recent improvements and the latest performance results.
