A measurement is presented of differential cross sections for Higgs boson (H) production in pp collisions at √ s = 8 TeV. The analysis exploits the H → γ γ decay in data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb −1 collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The cross section is measured as a function of the kinematic properties of the diphoton(More)
Event generator tunes obtained from underlying event and multiparton scattering measurements" (2016). Kenneth Bloom Publications. 367. Abstract 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(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)
A search is presented for narrow heavy resonances X decaying into pairs of Higgs bosons ([Formula: see text]) in proton-proton collisions collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC at [Formula: see text]. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.7[Formula: see text]. The search considers [Formula: see text] resonances with masses between 1 and(More)
Forward–backward asymmetry of Drell–Yan lepton pairs in pp collisions at √ s = 8 TeV Abstract A measurement of the forward–backward asymmetry A FB of oppositely charged lepton pairs (μμ and ee) produced via Z/γ * boson exchange in pp collisions at √ s = 8 TeV is presented. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb −1 collected with(More)
The top quark pair production cross section is measured for the first time in proton-proton collisions at sqrt[s]=13  TeV by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC, using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 43  pb^{-1}. The measurement is performed by analyzing events with at least one electron and one muon of opposite charge, and at least two(More)
A measurement of the W boson pair production cross section in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 8 TeV is presented. The data collected with the CMS detector at the LHC correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.4 fb −1. The W + W − candidates are selected from events with two charged leptons, electrons or muons, and large missing transverse energy. The(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)
Inclusive jet production in pPb collisions at a nucleon–nucleon (NN) center-of-mass energy of √ s NN = 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 < η CM < 1.5(More)
