 Search for a massive resonance decaying to a pair of Higgs bosons in the four b quark final state in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV A search for a massive resonance decaying into a pair of standard model Higgs bosons, in a final state consisting of two b quark-antiquark pairs, is performed.

 Topology in the 2d Heisenberg Model under Gradient Flow / Sandoval, Ilya O. (Mexico U., ICN) ; Bietenholz, Wolfgang (Mexico U., ICN) ; de Forcrand, Philippe (CERN ; Zurich, ETH) ; Gerber, Urs (IFM-UMSNH, Michoacan ; Mexico U., ICN) ; Mejía-Díaz, Héctor (Mexico U., ICN) The 2d Heisenberg model --- or 2d O(3) model --- is popular in condensed matter physics, and in particle physics as a toy model for QCD.

 Electroweak boson production with jets at CMS / Hortiangtham, Apichart (Northeastern U.) /CMS Collaboration The production of electroweak bosons (W, Z or gamma) in association with jets is a stringent test of perturbative QCD and is a background process in searches for new physics. Total and differential cross-section measurements of electroweak bosons produced in association with jets (and heavy flavour quarks) in proton-proton collisions are presented.
