Title: Recent results on hard processes in p +Pb, Pb+Pb, and pp collisions from the ATLAS Experiment at the LHC

Abstract

In relativistic heavy-ion collisions, a hot medium with a high density of unscreened colour charges is produced. Hard processes from parton-parton scattering in the early stages of the collision can be used as probes of the medium since the initial state is mostly understood such that differences from pp collisions in the final state can be attributed to interactions with the medium. The initial and final state effects are separated by comparing p+Pb and pp collisions. Recent results from the ATLAS experiment at the LHC on the production of electroweak bosons, jets, and quarkonia are discussed in p+Pb and Pb+Pb collisions, compared to pp. Recent results on ultra-peripheral collisions are also shown.
