Double Muon Trigger efficiency in 2012 data /CMS Collaboration
Method and results for the computation of the efficiency of double muon triggers are presented in this report. Efficiencies for the two main HLT double muon triggers used in 2012 ($Mu17\_Mu8$ and $Mu17\_TkMu8$) are computed on the basis of data collected at the end of the LHC Run-1 period (Run2012D dataset). Moreover, a breakdown of the intermediate results from each step of the efficiency measurement method, as well as data/montecarlo scale-factor ratios, are presented for the $Mu17\_TkMu8$ trigger..

Jet measurement with the CASTOR calorimeter /CMS Collaboration
The measurement of low $p_T$ ($> 3$ GeV) very forward ($\sim 6$) jets with the CASTOR calorimeter of the CMS experiment is presented. The CASTOR (Centauro And STrange Objects Research) calorimeter is covering the pseudorapidity range $-6.6 < \eta < -5.2$ and is located at -14.37 m from the interaction point. [...]

L1-tau trigger for LHC phase-1 - performance plots /CMS Collaboration
A new algorithm dedicated to the tau lepton trigger at Level-1 has been developed for the phase-1 of the LHC. A thorough study of the tau energy deposits in the CMS calorimeters performed directly on data taken during the LHC Run 1 has guided the development of this new algorithm. [...]

Performance of the Mean-Timer algorithm for DT Local Reconstruction and muon time measurement. /CMS Collaboration
The Mean-Timer algorithm has been recently implemented as default for the local reconstruction within the CMS Drift Tubes (DT), for muons that appear to be out-of-time (OOT) or lack measured hits on one of the two space projections. Besides improving the spatial resoluton for OOT muons, this method allows a precise time measurement that can be used to tag OOT muons, in order either to reject them (e.g. [...]

ECAL Timing Performance /CMS Collaboration
The CMS electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL) is made of about 75000 scintillating lead tungstate crystals arranged in a barrel and two endcaps. The scintillation light is read out by avalanche photodiodes in the barrel and vacuum phototriodes in the endcaps, at which point the scintillation pulse is amplified and sampled at 40 MHz by the on-detector electronics.
