    Standard Model Higgs Combination from CMS with up to 1.7 fb-1 of data

    Full text link
    The combination is presented of searches for a standard model (SM) Higgs boson in eight decay modes: H->gamma,gamma, H->tau,tau, H->bb, H->WW->2l2nu, H->ZZ->4l, H->ZZ->2l2tau, H->ZZ->2l2nu, and H->ZZ->2l2q. The searches were performed by the CMS Collaboration using 1.1-1.7 fb-1 of integrated luminosity, depending on the analysis. No excess compatible with a SM Higgs signal has been observed; the largest excursion of the observed data from the expected background has a probability of 0.4 after taking into account the look-elsewhere effect. The SM Higgs boson is excluded at 95% C.L. in three mass ranges 145-216, 226-288, and 310-400 GeV/c2, while the expected exclusion range is 130-440 GeV/c2.Comment: Presented at the 2011 Hadron Collider Physics symposium (HCP-2011),Paris, France, November 14-18 2011, 4 pages, 4 figure

    A first measurement of the average polarisation P_tau of tau leptons produced in e+e- annihilation at energies significantly above the Z resonance is presented. The polarisation is determined from the kinematic spectra of tau hadronic decays. The measured value P_tau = -0.164 +/- 0.125 is consistent with the Standard Model prediction for the mean LEP energy of 197 GeV.A first measurement of the average polarisation PŌĄ of tau leptons produced in e + e ‚ąí annihilation at energies significantly above the Z resonance is presented.

    Differential cross section measurements for the production of a W boson in association with jets in proton‚Äďproton collisions at ‚ąös = 7 TeV

    Measurements are reported of differential cross sections for the production of a W boson, which decays into a muon and a neutrino, in association with jets, as a function of several variables, including the transverse momenta (pT) and pseudorapidities of the four leading jets, the scalar sum of jet transverse momenta (HT), and the difference in azimuthal angle between the directions of each jet and the muon. The data sample of pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV was collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb[superscript ‚ąí1]. The measured cross sections are compared to predictions from Monte Carlo generators, MadGraph + pythia and sherpa, and to next-to-leading-order calculations from BlackHat + sherpa. The differential cross sections are found to be in agreement with the predictions, apart from the pT distributions of the leading jets at high pT values, the distributions of the HT at high-HT and low jet multiplicity, and the distribution of the difference in azimuthal angle between the leading jet and the muon at low values.United States.
