A study of dijet production in proton-proton collisions was performed at √s = 7 TeV for jets with pT > 35 GeV and |y| < 4.7[1] using data collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2010. Events with at least one pair of jets are denoted as...

Results are presented from a search for new physics in which the final state contains a photon (γ) and missing transverse energy (MET). The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb−1 (inverse femtobarns) collected in pp collisions at √s...

The LHC provides CMS with millions of collisions each second, and a wealth of physics data is obtained from the proton-proton interactions. In order to record all these data for analyses, all CMS sub-detectors have to be performing optimally. If you...
