# CERN Accelerating science

The Preprints collection aims to cover as far as possible all the grey literature in particle physics and its related technologies. The collection contains something like 400,000 documents, out of which about 50% can be accessed electronically. The documents originate from a variety of institutes all over the world. The collection, currently available, starts in 1979 and it has a full coverage of the arXiv.org e-Print archive since its beginning in 1991.

 Diffraction, forward physics and soft QCD results from the CMS experiment / Ciesielski, Robert Adam (Rockefeller U.) /CMS Collaboration We report on the recent CMS measurements of soft hadron-hadron production, including the measurements of inclusive single- and double- diffractive cross sections, as well as the measurement of pseudorapidity distributions, and of the leading charged particle and leading jet cross sections. We present the cross sections for low-pT forward jets production, and production of dijets with large rapidity separation (central-forward, and forward-backward jets).

 Top Quark Mass Measurements at the LHC / Stieger, Benjamin Bastian (CERN) /ATLAS and CMS Collaborations We present an overview of top quark mass measurements performed with the ATLAS and CMS detectors at the LHC, using datasets of proton-proton collisions recorded in 2011 and 2012 at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV and sqrt(s) = 8 TeV. The presented analyses comprise standard template measurements in the single-lepton, di-lepton, and all-hadronic channels, as well as alternative techniques for measuring the top mass..

 Quarkonium production in pp collisions with the CMS detector / Pompili, Alexis (INFN, Bari ; Bari U.) /CMS Collaboration The studies of the inclusive production of heavy quarkonium states at LHC are very important to improve our understanding of QCD and hadron formation, given that the heavy-quark masses allow the application of theoretical tools less sensitive to nonperturbative effects. The prompt cross sections and polarizations measured by CMS and the other LHC experiments are presented for the five S-wave states $J/\psi$, $\psi(2S)$ and $\Upsilon(nS)$ ($n=1,2,3$) and discussed especially in comparison to the theoretical predictions provided by Non Relativistic QCD..

 Observation of Structures in the J/ï¿½?ï¿½? Mass Spectrum at CMS / Albayrak, Elif Asli (Bogazici U.) /CMS Collaboration In this talk we will report the recent studies of exotic hadrons performed at CMS. The focus will be on the Y(4140) structure which is observed by several experiments in the J/ï¿½?ï¿½? invariant mass spectrum.. CMS-CR-2014-209.- Geneva : CERN, 2014 - 6 p.

 Quarkonium production measurements and searches for exotic quarkonia at CMS / Kratschmer, Ilse (Vienna, OAW) /CMS Collaboration The CMS experiment at the LHC studies conventional and exotic quarkonia. CMS measured the quarkonium polarization of prompt $\Psi$(nS) and $\Upsilon$(nS) states, using 2011 data taken in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 7$~TeV.

 Performance of muon-based triggers at the CMS High Level Trigger / Alimena, Juliette (Brown U.) /CMS Collaboration The trigger systems of the LHC detectors play a crucial role in determining the physics capabilities of the experiments. A reduction of several orders of magnitude of the event rate is needed to reach values compatible with the detector readout, offline storage and analysis capabilities.

 Measurements of heavy flavor properties at ATLAS and CMS / Kratschmer, Ilse (Vienna, OAW) /ATLAS and CMS Collaborations The ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC have a rich program in heavy flavor physics and cover a variety of topics in this field. This paper presents the following recent results: The measurement of the parity-violating decay asymmetry parameter $\alpha_{b}$ in $\Lambda_{b}^0$ decays conducted by ATLAS; studies of the $B_{c}^{\pm}$ meson performed by ATLAS and CMS; and the determination of quarkonium polarization by CMS.
