CMS Scientific Results

CMS Scientific Results

The CMS Collaboration has a broad physics programme, ranging from measurements of Standard Model quantities and the recently discovered Higgs boson, to studies of heavy-ion collisions, and searches for new particles, phenomena, and even extra dimensions in the Universe. The collaboration has published over 1000 scientific papers since 2010. CMS results from LHC collision data collected with the CMS detector are made public via papers (published or submitted for publication) and public notes (PAS) describing preliminary results.  CMS also releases public notes that include detector and performance plots (DP), results on physics upgrade studies as well as Technical Design Reports. Many of these results also provide an article targeting the general public which can be found on this page.

The CMS Physics Coordination area has 8 groups dedicated to different thematic physics analyses (PAGs), and 8 groups focused on physics objects (POGs). There are 4 groups (SG) in charge of reconstruction, simulation, and algorithms and 2 cross-coordinated groups among PAGs and POGs. The Physics Coordination office provides support in the development of triggers and in the development, maintenance, and use of analysis data formats (XPOG). The PC communication office prepares content for the dissemination of CMS physics results and sustains communication with the wider HEP community.
