 CMS inner detector: the Run 1 to Run 2 transition, and first experience of Run 2 / Lange, Clemens (Zurich U.) /CMS Collaboration The CMS inner detector is the largest silicon tracker ever built. Located around the center of CMS where the LHC particle beams are brought into collision, it consists of a hybrid pixel detector with 66 million channels and a 200~m$^2$ silicon strip detector with about 10~million readout channels.

 Consensus Convergence with Stochastic Effects / Garnier, Josselin ; Papanicolaou, George ; Yang, Tzu-Wei We consider a stochastic, continuous state and time opinion model where each agent's opinion locally interacts with other agents' opinions in the system, and there is also exogenous randomness.

 Is the statement of Murphy's Law valid? / Chatterjee, Atanu Murphy's Law is $not$ a law in the formal sense yet popular science often compares it with the Second Law of Thermodynamics as both the statements point toward a more disorganized state with time. [...] arXiv:1508.07291. - 2015. Preprint
