Gravitational waves detected 100 years after Einstein’s prediction

UF News  online

2016-02-11

Coherent WaveBurst, was developed at the University of Florida by physics professors Sergey Klimenko and Guenakh Mitselmakher, and their graduate students and postdoctoral research associates. Klimenko and Mitselmakher have been leaders in LIGO’s search for gravitational-wave bursts since 1997. The burst search seeks to detect short gravitational-wave signals from supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, mergers of binary neutron stars and black holes, and other catastrophic astrophysical events.

Measurements of production cross sections of and same-sign boson pairs in association with two jets in proton-proton collisions at at the LHC are reported. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 137, collected with the CMS detector during 2016–2018. The measurements are performed in the leptonic decay modes Image 1 and Image 2, where , Image 3.

Measurement of CKM matrix elements in single top quark t-channel production in proton-proton collisions at

Physics Letters B

A.M. Sirunyan, et al.

2020-09-10

The first direct, model-independent measurement is presented of the modulus of the Cabibbo–Kobayashi–Maskawa (CKM) matrix elements and in final states enriched in single top quark t-channel events. The analysis uses proton-proton collision data from the LHC, collected during 2016 by the CMS experiment, at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb−1.
