1  AAD 2015AR based on 20.3 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. A fit to ${{\mathit H}_{{T}}}$ distributions in multi-channels classified by the number of jets and of ${{\mathit b}}$-tagged jets is performed.
2  AAD 2015BY based on 20.3 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. A same-sign lepton pair is required. An excess over the SM prediction reaches 2.5 ${{\mathit \sigma}}$ for hypotheses involving heavy resonances decaying into ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}{{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ .
3  Based on 19.6 fb${}^{-1}$ of data, using a multivariate analysis to separate signal from backgrounds. About ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}{{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}{)}$ = 1 fb is expected in the SM.
