    The potential of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment to measure Drell-Yan muon pairs is studied. The efficiency of Level-1 and High Level Triggers to these events is investigated. Muon pairs can be explored by CMS with high precision up to very high invariant masses. Systematic errors are considered. The possibility of performing precise measurements of the forward-backward asymmetry is discussed

    In this work the study of Randall-Sundrum graviton decay into muon pairs has been performed. A full simulation and reconstruction analysis was carried out to derive both the CMS discovery potential for Randall-Sundrum graviton and spin determination performance in this channel

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

    Get PDF
    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.
