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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

Search for physics beyond the standard model in events with two leptons, jets, and missing transverse momentum in pp collisions at √s = 8 TeV
A search is presented for physics beyond the standard model in final states with two opposite-sign same-flavor leptons, jets, and missing transverse momentum. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.4 ...
Search for resonant pair production of Higgs bosons decaying to two bottom quark-antiquark pairs in proton-proton collisions at 8 TeV
A model-independent search for a narrow resonance produced in proton-proton collisions at √s=8 TeV and decaying to a pair of 125 GeV Higgs bosons that in turn each decays into a bottom quark-antiquark pair is performed by ...
Study of W boson production in pPb collisions at √sNN=5.02TeV
The first study of W boson production in pPb collisions is presented, for bosons decaying to a muon or electron, and a neutrino. The measurements are based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of ...
Search for narrow high-mass resonances in proton-proton collisions at √s = 8 TeV decaying to a Z and a Higgs boson
A search for a narrow, high-mass resonance decaying into Z and Higgs (H) bosons is presented. The final state studied consists of a merged jet pair and a τ pair resulting from the decays of Z and H bosons, respectively. ...
