 Run 1 Higgs legacy combination / Donato, Silvio (INFN, Pisa ; Pisa, Scuola Normale Superiore) /ATLAS and CMS Collaborations The discovery of the Higgs boson has been an important success of the LHC Run 1. This document presents the combination of the ATLAS and CMS measurements of the Higgs boson production and decay rates and of the Higgs boson coupling with vector bosons and fermions.

 Collectivity of strange hadrons in small and large colliding systems with CMS / Stephans, George Stewart (MIT) /CMS Collaboration Observation of a long-range, near-side, two-particle correlation (known as the Ridge") in high-multiplicity pp and pPb collisions opened up new opportunities of exploring novel QCD dynamics in small collision systems. CMS has excellent capabilities of reconstructing weakly decay strange hadrons such as $K^0_s$, $\Lambda$ and $\Xi^-$. [...] CMS-CR-2016-233.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 3 p.

 Higgs boson production at the CMS experiment / Choudhury, Somnath (Bhubaneswar, Inst. Phys.) /CMS Collaboration After the discovery of the Higgs boson, the ATLAS and CMS experiments have performed combined measurements of the mass of the Higgs boson and also measurements of the production and decay rates, as well as constraints on its couplings to vector bosons and fermions. These combined LHC measurements from the proton-proton collision Run-1 data will be summarized. [...] CMS-CR-2016-228.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 8 p.

 Squark/gluino searches in hadronic channels with CMS / Sakuma, Tai (Bristol U.) /CMS Collaboration These proceedings summarize the results of four analyses which searched for squarks and gluinos in hadronic final states with missing transverse momentum in 2.3~fb$^{-1}$ of data in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$~TeV collected in the year 2015 with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC. Each analysis is characterized by a different kinematic variable that is sensitive to the presence of invisible particles, e.g., $M_\text{T2}$, $\alpha_{\text{T}}$, and \textit{razor} variables.

 Heavy ion results from CMS / Milosevic, Jovan (VINCA Inst. Nucl. Sci., Belgrade) /CMS Collaboration Two- and multi-particle angular correlations in pp, pPb and PbPb collisions at the LHC energies are presented as a function of centrality, charged-particle multiplicity and transverse momentum ($p_{T}$). The data were collected using the CMS detector. [...] CMS-CR-2016-221.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 9 p. Fulltext: PDF; In : 24th Low-x Meeting, Gyongyos, Hungary, 06 - 10 Jun 2016

 Search for Scalar Top-Quark Production in the all Hadronic Channel at 13 TeV / Norberg, Scarlet Rachel (Puerto Rico U., Mayaguez) /CMS Collaboration A search for top squarks in events with jets and missing transverse momentum is presented. The data were collected in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 fb-1.

 Heavy flavour physics from CMS and ATLAS / Swain, Sanjay Kumar (Bhubaneswar, Inst. Phys.) /ATLAS and CMS Collaborations The study of heavy flavor physics plays an important role in testing Quantum Chromody- namics (QCD) calculations. Here we discuss the production and properties of b and c quarks. The physics properties show up through different experimental observables. [...] CMS-CR-2016-222.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 10 p.
