Precision measurement and interpretation of inclusive $W^+$, $W^-$ and $Z/\gamma^*$ production cross sections with the ATLAS detector
High-precision measurements by the ATLAS Collaboration are presented of inclusive $W^+\to\ell^+\nu$, $W^-\to\ell^-\bar{\nu}$ and $Z/\gamma^*\to\ell\ell$ ($\ell=e,\mu$) Drell--Yan production cross sections at the LHC [...]

High precision, low disturbance calibration of the High Voltage system of the CMS Barrel Electromagnetic Calorimeter / Fasanella, Giuseppe (Brussels U.) /CMS Collaboration
The CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter utilizes scintillating lead tungstate crystals, with avalanche photodiodes (APD) as photo-detectors in the barrel part. 1224 HV channels bias groups of 50 APD pairs, each at a voltage of about 380 V. [...]

Reconstruction and Selection of Single Top + Higgs to $\mathrm{b}\overline{\mathrm{b}}$ events at CMS in pp Collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV / Floeh, Kevin Marcel (KIT, Karlsruhe, EKP) /CMS Collaboration
The associated production of a single top quark together with a Higgs boson at the LHC can be used to lift the degeneracy regarding the sign of the top quark Yukawa coupling. Therefore, t-channel and tW-channel production where the Higgs boson is decaying into a $\mathrm{b}\overline{\mathrm{b}}$ pair is inspected. [...]

The CMS Level-1 Trigger for LHC Run II / Cadamuro, Luca (Ecole Polytechnique) /CMS Collaboration
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment implements a sophisticated two-level online selection system that achieves a rejection factor of nearly $10^5$. During Run~II, the LHC has increased the centre-of-mass energy of proton-proton collisions up to 13 TeV and may progressively reach an instantaneous luminosity of $2\times10^{34}\mbox{cm}^{-2}\mbox{s}^{-1}$ or higher.

Study of rare B-decays with the CMS experiment / Swain, Sanjay Kumar (Bhubaneswar, NISER) /CMS Collaboration
The Flavour Changing Neutral Current decays $B \rightarrow K^{*} \mu^+ \mu^-$ and $B \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^-$ provide high sensitivity to New Physics contributions. Sensitive observables include the muon forward-backward asymmetry, the fraction of $K^*$ longitudinal polarisation, and the differential branching fraction. [...]

Measurement of the prompt $J/\psi$ pair production cross-section in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV with the ATLAS detector
The production of two prompt $J/\psi$ mesons, each with transverse momenta $p_{\mathrm{T}}>8.5$ GeV and rapidity $|y| < 2.1$, is studied using a sample of proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 11.4 fb$^{-1}$ collected in 2012 with the ATLAS detector at the LHC.

Measurement of the $W$ boson polarisation in $t\bar{t}$ events from $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV in the lepton+jets channel with ATLAS / Aaboud, Morad (Oujda U.) ; Aad, Georges (Marseille, CPPM) ; Abbott, Brad (Oklahoma U.) ; Abdallah, Jalal (Texas U., Arlington) ; Abdinov, Ovsat (Baku, Inst. Phys.) ; Abeloos, Baptiste (Orsay, LAL) ; AbouZeid, Ossama (UC, Santa Cruz) ; Abraham, Nicola (Sussex U.) ; Abramowicz, Halina (Tel Aviv U.) ; Abreu, Henso (Technion) et al. /ATLAS
This paper presents a measurement of the polarisation of $W$ bosons from $t\bar{t}$ decays, reconstructed in events with one high-$p_{\mbox{T}}$ lepton and at least four jets. Data from $pp$ collisions at the LHC were collected at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 20.2 fb$^{-1}$. [...]

Observation of the decay $\Xi_b^- \to p K^-K^-$ / Aaij, Roel (CERN) ; Adeva, Bernardo (U. Santiago de Compostela (main)) ; Adinolfi, Marco (Bristol U.) ; Ajaltouni, Ziad (Clermont-Ferrand U.) ; Akar, Simon (Cincinnati U.) ; Albrecht, Johannes (Tech. U., Dortmund (main)) ; Alessio, Federico (CERN) ; Alexander, Michael (Glasgow U.) ; Ali, Suvayu (NIKHEF, Amsterdam) ; Alkhazov, Georgy (St. Petersburg, INP) et al. /LHCb
Decays of the $\Xi_b^-$ and $\Omega_b^-$ baryons to the charmless final states $p h^{-}h^{\prime -}$, where $h^{(\prime)}$ denotes a kaon or pion, are searched for with the LHCb detector. The analysis is based on a sample of proton-proton collision data collected at centre-of-mass energies $\sqrt{s} = 7$ and $8 TeV$, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3 {\rm fb}^{-1}$.
