Brief physics survey with CMS in year one


The CMS detector is one of the two general purpose experiments that will study the collisions produced by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC is supposed to start its operation in 2007 at an instantaneous luminosity of 2 x 10^33 cm-2 s-1, which may well result in an integrated luminosity of 10 fb-1 after the first year of running. The corresponding physics reach of CMS is exemplified with the study of a few standard model channels (weak boson and top quark production) and with the searches for Higgs bosons.Comment: 6 pages, 5 figures, contribution to the Proceedings of the QCD 2003 Moriond conferenc
