 2019-08-1214:12 [PUBDB-2019-02987] Preprint/Report et al Search for pair production of vector-like quarks in the fully hadronic final state [arXiv:1906.11903; CMS-B2G-18-005; CERN-EP-2019-129]   The results of two searches for pair production of vector-like T or B quarks in fully hadronic final states are presented, using data from the CMS experiment at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The data were collected at the LHC during 2016 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$.

All searches make use of proton-proton collision data at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV, which were recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2016, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-1214:03 [PUBDB-2019-02985] Preprint/Report et al Measurement of the top quark Yukawa coupling from $\mathrm{t\bar{t}}$ kinematic distributions in the lepton+jets final state in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} =$ 13 TeV [arXiv:1907.01590; CMS-TOP-17-004; CERN-EP-2019-119]   Results are presented for an extraction of the top quark Yukawa coupling from top quark-antiquark ($\mathrm{t\bar{t}}$) kinematic distributions in the lepton plus jets final state in proton-proton collisions, based on data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC at $\sqrt{s} =$ 13 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.8 fb$^{-1}$. Corrections from weak boson exchange, including Higgs bosons, between the top quarks can produce large distortions of differential distributions near the energy threshold of $\mathrm{t\bar{t}}$ production.

Proton-proton collision data recorded by the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV were used, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-1213:56 [PUBDB-2019-02983] Preprint/Report et al Measurement of the top quark polarization and $\mathrm{t\bar{t}}$ spin correlations using dilepton final states in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV [arXiv:1907.03729; CMS-TOP-18-006; CERN-EP-2019-073]   Measurement of the top quark polarization and $\mathrm{t\bar{t}}$ spin correlations are presented using events containing two oppositely charged leptons $(e^+ e^−, e^± μ^∓$, or $μ^+ μ^−)$ produced in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The data were recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2016 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{−1}$ [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-1213:51 [PUBDB-2019-02982] Preprint/Report et al Study of the B$^+ \to$J$/\psi\overline{\Lambda}$p decay in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 8 TeV [arXiv:1907.05461; CMS-BPH-18-005; CERN-EP-2019-128]   A study of the B$^+\to$J$/\psi\overline{\Lambda}$p decay using proton-proton collision data collected at $\sqrt{s}=$ 8 TeV by the CMS experiment at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.6 fb$^{-1}$, is presented. The ratio of branching fractions $\mathcal{B}$(B$^+ \to$J$/\psi\overline{\Lambda}$p )$/\mathcal{B}$(B$^\to$J$/\psi$K$^*$(892)$^+$) is measured to be (1.054 $\pm$ 0.057 (stat) $\pm$ 0.035 (syst) $\pm$ 0.011 ($\mathcal{B}$))%, where the last uncertainty reflects the uncertainties in the world-average branching fractions of $\overline{\Lambda}$ and K$^*$(892)$^+$ decays to reconstructed final states.

Novel jet substructure techniques are developed that allow photons to be identified in an environment densely populated with hadrons.

The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb$^{−1}$ that probe a broad range of the available phase space, for $|η^{γ}| <$ 1.44 and 1.57 $< |η^{γ}| <$ 2.50, $|η^{jet}| <$ 2.5, 40  25 GeV [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-1213:34 [PUBDB-2019-02979] Preprint/Report et al Measurement of differential cross sections and charge ratios for $t$-channel single top quark production in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV [arXiv:1907.08330; CMS-TOP-17-023; CERN-EP-2019-138]   A measurement is presented of differential cross sections for $t$-channel single top quark and antiquark production in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV by the CMS experiment at the LHC. From a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$, events containing one muon or electron and two or three jets are analysed.

They are constrained by studying events with two vector bosons; a W boson decaying to e$ν$ or $μν$, and a W or Z boson decaying hadronically, reconstructed as a single, massive, large-radius jet [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA);
