Search for third-generation scalar leptoquarks in the tτ channel in proton-proton collisions at √s = 8 TeV
A search for pair production of third-generation scalar leptoquarks decaying to top quark and τ lepton pairs is presented using proton-proton collision data at a center-of-mass energy of √s = 8 TeV collected with the CMS ...
Angular coefficients of Z bosons produced in pp collisions at √s=8 TeV and decaying to μ+μ- as a function of transverse momentum and rapidity
Measurements of the five most significant angular coefficients, A0 through A4, for Z bosons produced in pp collisions at √s=8 TeV and decaying to μ+μ- are presented as a function of the transverse momentum and rapidity of ...
Search for a Higgs boson in the mass range from 145 to 1000 GeV decaying to a pair of W or Z bosons
A search for a heavy Higgs boson in the H → WW and H → ZZ decay channels is reported. The search is based upon proton-proton collision data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of up to 5.1 fb−1 at s√=7s=7 ...
Measurement of the W boson helicity in events with a single reconstructed top quark in pp collisions at √s = 8 TeV
A measurement of the W boson helicity is presented, where the W boson originates from the decay of a top quark produced in pp collisions. The event selection, optimized for reconstructing a single top quark in the final ...
Search for neutral color-octet weak-triplet scalar particles in proton-proton collisions at √s = 8TeV
A search for pair production of neutral color-octet weak-triplet scalar particles ( 0) is performed in processes where one 0 decays to a pair of b quark jets and the other to a Z boson plus a jet, with the Z boson ...
Searches for supersymmetry using the MT2 variable in hadronic events produced in pp collisions at 8 TeV
Searches for supersymmetry (SUSY) are performed using a sample of hadronic events produced in 8 TeV pp collisions at the CERN LHC. The searches are based on the M T2 variable, which is a measure of the transverse momentum ...
Search for disappearing tracks in proton-proton collisions at √s = 8 TeV
A search is presented for long-lived charged particles that decay within the CMS detector and produce the signature of a disappearing track. Disappearing tracks are identified as those with little or no associated calorimeter ...
Measurement of the ratio of the production cross sections times branching fractions of B± c → J / ψπ± and B± → J / ψK± and B (B± c → J / ψπ±π ±π ∓) / B (B± c → J / ψπ±) in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV
Abstract: The ratio of the production cross sections times branching fractions σ(B± c )B(B± c → J/ψπ±) / σ(B±)B(B± → J/ψK±) is studied in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with ...

Comparison of the Z/γ ∗ + jets to γ + jets cross sections in pp collisions at √s = 8 TeV
A comparison of the differential cross sections for the processes Z/γ * + jets and photon (γ)+jets is presented. The measurements are based on data collected with the CMS detector at √s = 8 TeV corresponding to an integrated ...
