Abstract

Exploring Open image in new window production with the CMS data requires the definition of sensitive observables and of a statistical method to evaluate the presence of a signal, that are the object of the first part of this chapter. The results obtained on the data collected in 2016 are then described and compared to other Open image in new window searches performed at the LHC Run II.
