  • A bstractA search for microscopic black holes and string balls is presented, based on a data sample of pp collisions at $ \sqrt{s}=8 $ TeV recorded by the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 12 fb−1. No excess of events with energetic multiparticle final states, typical of black hole production or of similar new physics processes, is observed. Given the agreement of the observations with the expected standard model background, which is… CONTINUE READING
