 Study of the CMS Phase 1 Pixel Pilot Blade Reconstruction /CMS Collaboration The silicon pixel detector is the innermost component of the CMS tracking system. It was replaced in March 2017 with an upgraded one, called the Phase 1 upgrade detector. [...] CMS-DP-2017-020; CERN-CMS-DP-2017-020.- Geneva : CERN, 2017 - 15 p. Fulltext: PDF;

 CMS Phase 1 heavy flavour identification performance and developments /CMS Collaboration At the Large Hadron Collider, the identification of jets originating from heavy flavour quarks (b or c tagging) is important for searches for new physics and for measurements of standard model processes. A variety of b tagging algorithms has been developed at CMS to select b-quark jets based on variables such as the impact parameters of the charged-particle tracks, the properties of reconstructed decay vertices, and the presence or absence of a lepton, or combinations thereof.

 Performance of heavy flavour identification algorithms in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV at the CMS experiment /CMS Collaboration Many measurements as well as searches for new physics beyond the standard model at the LHC rely on the efficient identification of heavy flavour jets, i.e. jets containing b or c hadrons.

 Muon Identification and Isolation efficiency on full 2016 dataset /CMS Collaboration The performance of muon reconstruction and identification in CMS has been studied on data collected in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV at the LHC. It has been studied on a sample of muons corresponding to an integrated luminosity of up to 36 $fb^{-1}$. [...] CMS-DP-2017-007; CERN-CMS-DP-2017-007.- Geneva : CERN, 2017 - 19 p. Fulltext: PDF;
