 Measurement of the transverse momentum distribution of Drell-Yan lepton pairs in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV with the ATLAS detector This paper describes precision measurements of the transverse momentum $p_\mathrm{T}^{\ell\ell}$ ($\ell=e,\mu$) and of the angular variable $\phi^{*}_{\eta}$ distributions of Drell-Yan lepton pairs in a mass range of 66-116 GeV.

 Level 1 Track Finder at CMS / Hart, Andrew Evan (Rutgers U., Piscataway) The High-Luminosity LHC is expected to deliver proton-proton collisions every $25\,\mathrm{ns}{}$ with an estimated 140--200 pileup interactions per bunch crossing. Ultrafast track finding is vital for handling Level 1 trigger rates in such conditions. [...] CMS-CR-2019-150.- Geneva : CERN, 2019 - 7 p.
