  • Abstract Charged Higgs bosons produced either in top-quark decays or in association with a top-quark, subsequently decaying via H , are searched for in 36.1 fb1 of proton-proton collision data at $$ sqrt{s}=13 $$ s = 13 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector. Depending on whether the top-quark produced together with H decays hadronically or leptonically, the search targets +jets and +lepton final states, in both cases with a hadronically decaying -lepton. No evidence of a charged Higgs boson is found. For the mass range of $$ {m}_{H^{pm }} $$ m H = 902000 GeV, upper limits at the 95% confidence level are set on the production cross-section of the charged Higgs boson times the branching fraction $$ mathrm{mathcal{B}}left({H}^{pm} o { au}^{pm }{
    u}_{ au}
    ight) $$
    in the range 4.20.0025 pb. In the mass range 90160 GeV, assuming the Standard Model cross-section for $$ toverline{t} $$ t t production, this corresponds to upper limits between 0.25% and 0.031% for the branching fraction $$ mathrm{mathcal{B}}left(t o b{H}^{pm}
    ight) imes mathrm{mathcal{B}}left({H}^{pm} o { au}^{pm }{
    u}_{ au}
    ight) $$
