A simultaneous measurement of the top-quark, W-boson, and neutrino masses is reported for tt events selected in the dilepton final state from a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb−1 collected by the CMS experiment in pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV. The analysis is based on endpoint determinations in kinematic distributions. When(More)
Results are reported from a search for new physics processes in events containing a single isolated high-transverse-momentum lepton (electron or muon), energetic jets, and large missing transverse momentum. The analysis is based on a 4.98 fb−1 sample of proton–proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, obtained with the CMS detector at the LHC.(More)
Searches for the direct electroweak production of supersymmetric charginos, neutralinos, and sleptons in a variety of signatureswith leptons andW,Z, andHiggs bosons are presented. Results are based on a sample of protonproton collision data collected at center-of-mass energy √ s = 8TeV with the CMS detector in 2012, corresponding to an integrated luminosity(More)
New sets of parameters (“tunes”) for the underlying-event (UE) modelling of the pythia8, pythia6 and herwig++Monte Carlo event generators are constructed using different parton distribution functions. Combined fits to CMS UE proton–proton (pp) data at √ s = 7 TeV and to UE proton–antiproton (pp) data from the CDF experiment at lower √ s, are used to study(More)
Inclusive jet production in pPb collisions at a nucleon–nucleon (NN) center-of-mass energy of √ sNN = 5.02 TeV is studied with the CMS detector at the LHC. A data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 30.1 nb−1 is analyzed. The jet transverse momentum spectra are studied in seven pseudorapidity intervals covering the range −2.0 < ηCM < 1.5 in(More)
Transverse momentum spectra of charged particles are measured by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC in pPb collisions at √ sNN = 5.02 TeV, in the range 0.4 < pT < 120 GeV/c and pseudorapidity |ηcm| < 1.8 in the proton–nucleon center-of-mass frame. For pT < 10 GeV/c, the charged-particle production is asymmetric about ηcm = 0, with smaller yield observed in(More)
An inclusive search for supersymmetric processes that produce final states with jets and missing transverse energy is performed in pp collisions at a centre-ofmass energy of 8 TeV. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 11.7 fb−1 collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. In this search, a dimensionless kinematic variable, αT, is used(More)
A measurement of the cross section for the production of top quark–antiquark pairs (tt) in associationwith a vector boson V (W or Z) in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 8TeV is presented. The results are based on a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.5 fb−1 recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC. The measurement is performed in three(More)
A search for invisible decays of Higgs bosons is performed using the vector boson fusion and associated ZH production modes. In the ZH mode, the Z boson is required to decay to a pair of charged leptons or a bb quark pair. The searches use the 8TeV pp collision dataset collected by the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of up(More)
Results are presented from a search for particle dark matter (DM), extra dimensions, and unparticles using events containing a jet and an imbalance in transverse momentum. The data were collected by the CMS detector in proton–proton collisions at the LHC and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb−1at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV . The number(More)
