    CMS results on the measurement of properties of the Higgs-like particle discovered last summer with a mass near 126 GeV are presented. The results are based on a data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of up to 5.1 fb-1 at 7 TeV and up to 19.6 fb-1 at 8 TeV in proton-proton collisions at the LHC. Five decay modes are studied: gamma-gamma, ZZ, WW, tau-tau and bb. The event yields obtained by different analyses targeting specific decay modes and production mechanisms are consistent with those expected for the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson. The mass of the new boson is measured to be 125.7 +- 0.4 GeV. The best-fit signal strength for all channels combined, expressed in units of the SM Higgs boson cross section, is 0.80 +- 0.14 at the measured mass. A discussion on the consistency of the couplings and the spin-parity properties of the observed boson with those predicted for the SM Higgs boson is presented, updated with the most recent results. No significant deviations are found

    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.
