Abstract Observation of the diphoton decay mode of the recently discovered Higgs boson and measurement of some of its properties are reported. The analysis uses the entire dataset collected by the CMS experiment in proton-proton collisions(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 −1 at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. The number(More)
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)
Searches for the direct electroweak production of supersymmetric charginos, neutralinos, and sleptons in a variety of signatures with leptons and W, Z, and Higgs bosons are presented. Results are based on a sample of proton-proton collision data collected at center-of-mass energy √ s = 8 TeV with the CMS detector in 2012, corresponding to an integrated(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)
The MIT Faculty has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters. 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 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)
