Title: Measurement of the ZZ Production Cross Section in $pp$ Collisions at $$\sqrt{s}$$ = 13 TeV with the ATLAS Detector

The ZZ production cross section in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV center-of-mass energy is measured using 3.2  fb$$^{-1}$$ of data recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The considered Z boson candidates decay to an electron or muon pair of mass 66-116 GeV. The cross section is measured in a fiducial phase space reflecting the detector acceptance. It is also extrapolated to a total phase space for Z bosons in the same mass range and of all decay modes, giving $$16.7^{+2.2}_{-2.0}$$(stat)$$ ^{+0.9}_{-0.7}$$(syst)$$ ^{+1.0}_{-0.7}$$(lumi) pb. The results agree with standard model predictions.
