Identification techniques for highly boosted W bosons that decay into hadrons
In searches for new physics in the energy regime of the LHC, it is becoming increasingly important to distinguish single-jet objects that originate from the merging of the decay products of W bosons produced with high ...
Study of hadronic event-shape variables in multijet final states in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV
Event-shape variables, which are sensitive to perturbative and nonperturbative aspects of quantum chromodynamic (QCD) interactions, are studied in multijet events recorded in proton-proton collisions at root s = 7 TeV. ...
Comparison of the Z/gamma* plus jets to gamma plus jets cross sections in pp collisions at root s=8 TeV
A comparison of the differential cross sections for the processes Z/gamma* + jets and photon (gamma)+ jets is presented. The measurements are based on data collected with the CMS detector at root s = 8TeV corresponding to ...
Search for massive resonances in dijet systems containing jets tagged as W or Z boson decays in pp collisions at root s=8 TeV
A search is reported for massive resonances decaying into a quark and a vector boson (W or Z), or two vector bosons (WW, WZ, or ZZ). The analysis is performed on an inclusive sample of multijet events corresponding to an ...
