Searches for Additional Higgs Bosons Using the ATLAS Detector

The discovery by both the CMS and ATLAS Collaborations of a Standard Model-like Higgs boson has opened a new era in the study of the Standard Model (SM). In addition, many efforts are underway to search for additional Higgs bosons in order to determine if there is a more general theory of nature than the SM. Such extensions of the SM often require the addition of other Higgs bosons. In this talk, I will discuss efforts by the ATLAS Collaboration to search for such beyond-the-Standard Model Higgs bosons, with interpretations of these searches in both model-independent and model-dependent contexts.
