The CMS experiment at the CERN LHC
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector is described. The detector operates at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It was conceived to study proton-proton (and lead-lead) collisions at a
Event generator tunes obtained from underlying event and multiparton scattering measurements
Combined fits to CMS UE proton–proton data at 7TeV and to UEProton–antiproton data from the CDF experiment at lower s, are used to study the UE models and constrain their parameters, providing thereby improved predictions for proton-proton collisions at 13.
Performance of electron reconstruction and selection with the CMS detector in proton-proton collisions at √s=8 TeV
The performance and strategies used in electron reconstruction and selection at CMS are presented based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 inverse femtobarns, collected in
Jet energy scale and resolution in the CMS experiment in pp collisions at 8 TeV
Improved jet energy scale corrections, based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb^(-1) collected by the CMS experiment in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass
Extraction and validation of a new set of CMS pythia8 tunes from underlying-event measurements
For the first time, predictions from pythia8 obtained with tunes based on NLO or NNLO PDFs are shown to reliably describe minimum-bias and underlying-event data with a similar level of agreement to predictions from tunes using LO PDF sets.
Observation of the diphoton decay of the Higgs boson and measurement of its properties
The analysis uses the entire dataset collected by the CMS experiment in proton-proton collisions during the 2011 and 2012 LHC running periods to observe and measure the diphoton decay mode of the recently discovered Higgs boson.
Performance of the CMS muon detector and muon reconstruction with proton-proton collisions at √s=13 TeV
The CMS muon detector system, muon reconstruction software, and high-level trigger underwent significant changes in 2013–2014 in preparation for running at higher LHC collision energy and
Search for invisible decays of Higgs bosons in the vector boson fusion and associated ZH production modes
The observed (expected) upper limit on the invisible branching fraction at 0.58 (0.44) is interpreted in terms of a Higgs-portal model of dark matter interactions.
