 Search for diboson resonances decaying into W, Z and H bosons at CMS / Lange, Clemens (CERN) /CMS Collaboration Beyond the standard model theories like extra-dimensions and composite Higgs scenarios predict the existence of very heavy resonances compatible with a spin-0 (radion), spin-1 (W', Z') and spin-2 (graviton) particle with large branching fractions in pairs of standard model bosons and negligible branching fractions to light fermions. We present an overview of searches for new physics containing W, Z or H bosons in the final state, using proton-proton collision data collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC.

 Performance and track-based alignment of the Phase-1 upgraded CMS pixel detector / Botta, Valeria (DESY) /CMS Collaboration The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector is a multi-purpose detector constructed in order to study high-energy particle collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The all-silicon design of the tracking system of the CMS experiment provided excellent resolution for charged tracks and an efficient tagging of jets during Run 1 and Run 2 of the LHC.

 Higgs boson measurements and extended scalar sector searches in bosonic final states / Zenz, Seth (Imperial Coll., London) /CMS Collaboration Searches for additional Higgs-like bosons in the H to WW and H to ZZ decay channels are reported, for boson masses in the range 145 $< m_H <$ 1000 GeV. The results are based upon proton-proton collision data samples at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 and 13 TeV, recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC. [...] CMS-CR-2017-182.- Geneva : CERN, 2017 - 7 p.

 Measurement of the $t\bar{t}$ spin correlations and top quark polarization in dileptonic channel / Khatiwada, Ajeeta (Purdue U.) /CMS Collaboration The degree of top polarization and strength of $t\bar{t}$ correlation are dependent on production dynamics, decay mechanism, and choice of the observables. At the LHC, measurement of the top polarization and spin correlations in $t\bar{t}$ production is possible through various observables related to the angular distribution of decay leptons.

 Search for supersymmetry with compressed mass spectra or decays via Higgs bosons at CMS / Heidegger, Constantin (Zurich, ETH) /CMS Collaboration In this talk, a review of searches for supersymmetric particles with very compressed mass spectra and searches for supersymmetric particles that decay via Higgs bosons is presented. All searches have used $35.9\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ of $13\,\mathrm{TeV}$ data collected by the CMS detector at the CERN LHC in 2016.. CMS-CR-2017-236.- Geneva : CERN, 2017 - 7 p.

 Search for EWK production of SUSY in final states with multiple leptons at the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC / Heidegger, Constantin (Zurich, ETH) /CMS Collaboration This poster reports on the search for the production of charginos and neutralinos in events with either two leptons of the same charge or three or more leptons using the full 2016 proton-proton collision dataset of $35.9\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ at $\sqrt{s}=13\,\mathrm{TeV}$ collected by the CMS detector. Exclusion limits at $95\,\%$ confidence level range between $450-1100\,\mathrm{GeV}$ depending on the SUSY scenario.. CMS-CR-2017-237.- Geneva : CERN, 2017 - 7 p.

 Performance of the modules for layer 1 of the CMS phase 1 pixel detector upgrade / Meinhard, Maren Tabea (Zurich, ETH) ; Backhaus, Malte (Zurich, ETH) ; Berger, Pirmin (Zurich, ETH) ; Starodumov, Andrey (Boskovic Inst., Zagreb) The instantaneous luminosity of the Large Hadron Collider will increase to up to 2x10$^{34}$\;cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$ by 2023. In order to cope with such luminosities, the pixel detector of the CMS experiment has been replaced in January 2017. [...] CMS-CR-2017-241.- Geneva : CERN, 2017 - 9 p.

 The construction of the phase 1 upgrade of the CMS pixel detector / Weber, Hannsjorg Artur (Fermilab) /CMS Collaboration The innermost layers of the original CMS tracker were built out of pixel detectors arranged in three barrel layers and two forward disks in each endcap. The original CMS detector was designed for the nominal instantaneous LHC luminosity of $1\times10^{34}\,\text{cm}^{-2}\text{s}^{-1}$. [...] CMS-CR-2017-247.- Geneva : CERN, 2017 - 10 p.

 Measurements of the top quark properties at decay with CMS / Castro, Andrea (INFN, Bologna ; Bologna U.) /CMS Collaboration CMS measurements of top quark properties related to top decays are discussed. The results presented regard the measurement of the W boson helicity, the investigation of anomalous couplings in the Wtb vertex, and the search for very rare decays, such as t- gt Zq and t- gt Hq, which are associated to flavor-changing neutral currents..
