 Single top quark production with CMS / Mitra, Soureek (TIFR, Mumbai, DHEP) /CMS Collaboration Measurements of single top quark production are presented, performed using CMS data collected in 2011, 2012 and 2015 at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV respectively. The cross sections for the electroweak production of single top quarks in the t-channel and in association with W-bosons is measured and the results are used to place constraints on the CKM matrix element Vtb.

 New physics in final states with leptons or photons (EXO) / Radogna, Raffaella (INFN, Bari ; Bari U.) /CMS Collaboration A survey is presented of results from some recent searches for exotic physics in final states with leptons or photons such as dilepton and diphoton massive resonances or vector-like quarks searches. The results are based on 13 TeV proton-proton collisions data collected by the CMS detector at the LHC.. CMS-CR-2016-122.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 9 p.

 High-$p_T$ multi-jet final states at ATLAS and CMS / Lange, Clemens (CERN) /ATLAS and CMS Collaborations The increase of the centre-of-mass energy of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to 13 TeV has opened up a new energy regime. Final states including high-momentum multi-jet signatures often dominate beyond standard model phenomena, in particular decay products of new heavy particles.

 The CMS Data Quality Monitoring software experience and future improvements / De Guio, Federico (Texas Tech.) /CMS Collaboration The Data Quality Monitoring (DQM) Software proved to be a central tool in the CMS experiment. Its flexibility allowed its integration in several environments Online, for real-time detector monitoring; Offline, for the final, fine-grained Data Certification; Release Validation, to constantly validate the functionality and the performance of the reconstruction software; in Monte Carlo productions.

 The role of the CMS electron and photon trigger in the study of the Higgs boson and other resonances / Strebler, Thomas (Ecole Polytechnique) /CMS Collaboration The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment implements a sophisticated two-level triggering system composed of the Level-1, instrumented by custom-design hardware boards, and a software High-Level-Trigger. A new Level-1 trigger architecture with improved performance is now being used to maintain the thresholds used in LHC Run I for the more challenging conditions experienced during Run II.We present the performance of the upgraded CMS electron and photon trigger in the context of Higgs boson decays into final states with photons and electrons.

 Jets in Heavy Ion Collisions with CMS / Salur, Sevil (Rutgers U., Piscataway) /CMS Collaboration Jet physics in heavy ion collisions is a rich field which has been rapidly evolving since the first observations of medium interactions at RHIC through back-to-back hadron correlations and at LHC via reconstructed jets. In order to completely characterize the final state via jet-medium interactions and distinguish between competing energy loss mechanisms complementary and robust jet observables are investigated.

 Emulation of a prototype FPGA track finder for the CMS Phase-2 upgrade with the CIDAF emulation framework. / CMS Collaboration The CMS collaboration is preparing a major upgrade of its detector, so it can operate during the high luminosity run of the LHC from 2026. The upgraded tracker electronics will reconstruct the trajectories of charged particles within a latency of a few microseconds, so that they can be used by the level-1 trigger.

 An FPGA based track finder at L1 for CMS at the High Luminosity LHC / Amstutz, Christian (KIT, Karlsruhe, EKP) ; Ball, Fionn Amhairghen (Bristol U.) ; Balzer, Matthias Norbert (KIT, Karlsruhe, EKP) ; Brooke, James John (Bristol U.) ; Calligaris, Luigi (Rutherford) ; Cieri, Davide (Rutherford) ; Clement, Emyr John (Bristol U.) ; Hall, Geoffrey (Imperial Coll., London) ; Harbaum, Tanja Renate (KIT, Karlsruhe, EKP) ; Harder, Kristian (Rutherford) et al. A new CMS Tracker is under development for operation at the High Luminosity LHC from 2025. It includes an outer tracker based on PT-modules which will construct tracker stubs, built by correlating clusters in two closely spaced sensor layers for the rejection of low transverse momentum track hits, and transmit them off-detector at 40MHz.

 Measurements of $K^{0}_{s}$, \PgL\ + \PagL, and $\Xi^{+}+\Xi^{-}$ production in pp, pPb, and PbPb collisions with CMS / Ni, Hong (Vanderbilt U.) /CMS Collaboration We present measurements of strange hadron ($K^{0}_{s}$, \PgL\ + \PagL, and $\Xi^{+} + \Xi^{-}$) transverse momentum ($p^{}_{T}$) spectra in pp, pPb, and PbPb collisions over a wide range in charge-particle multiplicity and particle rapidity. The data were taken with the CMS detector at the LHC for pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV, pPb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV, and PbPb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 2.76 TeV.
