 Rare top quark production in CMS ttZ, tZ, tgamma, and tttt production / Alvarez Gonzalez, Barbara (Oviedo U.) /CMS Collaboration A comprehensive set of measurements of top quark pair and single top quark production in association with EWK bosons (Z or $\gamma$) is presented. The results are compared to theory predictions and re-interpreted as searches for new physics inducing deviations from the standard model predictions using an effective field theory approach.

 SEARCHES FOR DARK MATTER AT THE LHC / Tapper, Alexander (Imperial Coll., London) /ATLAS and CMS Collaborations Astrophysical measurements show that around 85\% of the universe consists of dark matter, the origin of which is unknown. Dedicated experiments search for dark matter in the cosmos interacting directly and through annihilation [...] CMS-CR-2019-210.- Geneva : CERN, 2019 - 9 p.

 Recent Results on Heavy Flavour from CMS / Chistov, Ruslan (Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst.) /CMS Collaboration In this talk I report recent results on heavy flavor physics from pp collisions at CMS.It includes spectroscopy of open or hidden beauty hadrons from pp collision data at $\sqrt{s}=8$ and 13 TeV.These studies are aimed to gain new knowledge on the properties of beauty hadrons which enchance our understanding of QCD..

 Trans-Planckian Censorship and Inflation in Grand Unified Theories / Schmitz, Kai The recently proposed trans-Planckian censorship conjecture (TCC) amounts to the claim that inflation models with an inflationary energy scale larger than Lambda_inf^max ~ 10^9 GeV belong to the swampland, i.e., cannot be embedded into a consistent theory of quantum gravity.
