A study of vector boson scattering in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV is presented. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.4  fb(-1) collected with the CMS detector. Candidate events are selected with exactly two leptons of the same charge, two jets with large rapidity separation and high dijet mass, and moderate(More)
The second-order azimuthal anisotropy Fourier harmonics, v2, are obtained in p-Pb and PbPb collisions over a wide pseudorapidity (η) range based on correlations among six or more charged particles. The p-Pb data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35  nb-1, were collected during the 2013 LHC p-Pb run at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of(More)
Measurements of the differential and double-differential Drell–Yan cross sections in the dielectron and dimuon channels are presented. They are based on proton– proton collision data at √ s = 8 TeV recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb −1. The measured inclusive cross section in the Z peak region(More)

Abstract A search for a standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a top-quark pair and decaying to bottom quarks is presented. Events with hadronic jets and one or two oppositely charged leptons are selected from a data sample(More)
The purely electroweak (EW) cross section for the production of two jets in association with a Z boson, in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 8 TeV, is measured using data recorded by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb −1. The electroweak cross section for the jj final state (with = e or μ and j(More)
A search for new long-lived particles decaying to leptons is presented using proton-proton collisions produced by the LHC at √[s]=8  TeV. Data used for the analysis were collected by the CMS detector and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.7  fb(-1). Events are selected with an electron and muon with opposite charges that both have transverse(More)
A measurement of the cross section for the production of top quark–antiquark pairs (tt) in association with a vector boson V (W or Z) in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 8 TeV 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(More)
The production cross section of a W boson in association with two b jets is measured using a sample of proton–proton collisions at √ s = 8 TeV collected by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.8 fb −1. The W bosons are reconstructed via their leptonic decays, W → ν, where = μ or e. The fiducial(More)
Search for new physics in same-sign dilepton events in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 13 TeV Abstract A search for new physics is performed using events with two isolated same-sign leptons, two or more jets, and missing transverse momentum. The results are based on a sample of proton–proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV recorded with(More)
Measurement of the double-differential inclusive jet cross section in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 13 TeV Abstract A measurement of the double-differential inclusive jet cross section as a function of jet transverse momentum p T and absolute jet rapidity |y| is presented. The analysis is based on proton–proton collisions collected by the CMS experiment(More)
