Title: Review of bottomonium measurements from CMS

Abstract

We review the results on the bottomonium system from the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Measurements have been carried out at different center-of-mass energies in proton collisions and in collisions involving heavy ions. These include precision measurements of cross sections and polarizations, shedding light on hadroproduction mechanisms, and the observation of quarkonium sequential suppression, a notable indication of quark–gluon plasma formation. The observation of the production of bottomonium pairs is also reported along with searches for new states. We close with a brief outlook of the future physics program.

  • Combined ATLAS and CMS measurements of the Higgs boson production and decay rates, as well as constraints on its couplings to vector bosons and fermions, are presented. The combination is based on the analysis of five production processes, namely gluon fusion, vector boson fusion, and associated production with a W or a Z boson or a pair of top quarks, and of the six decay modes H → ZZ, W W , γγ, ττ, bb, and μμ. All results are reported assuming a value of 125.09 GeV for the Higgs boson mass, the result of the combined measurement by the ATLAS and CMS experiments. The analysis uses the CERN LHC proton-proton collision data recorded by the ATLAS and CMS experiments in 2011 and 2012, corresponding to integrated luminosities per experiment of approximately 5 fbmore » $$^{–1}$$ at $$ \sqrt{s}=7 $$ TeV and 20 fb$$^{–1}$$ at $$ \sqrt{s}=8 $$ TeV. The Higgs boson production and decay rates measured by the two experiments are combined within the context of three generic parameterisations: two based on cross sections and branching fractions, and one on ratios of coupling modifiers. Several interpretations of the measurements with more model-dependent parameterisations are also given. The combined signal yield relative to the Standard Model prediction is measured to be 1.09 ± 0.11. The combined measurements lead to observed significances for the vector boson fusion production process and for the H → ττ decay of 5.4 and 5.5 standard deviations, respectively. In conclusion, the data are consistent with the Standard Model predictions for all parameterisations considered.« less

  • Pion exchange in S-wave between hadrons that are themselves in a relative S-wave is shown to shift energies by hundreds of MeV, leading to deeply bound quasi-molecular states. In the case of charmed mesons D*,D1 a spectroscopy arises consistent with enigmatic charmonium states observed above 4 GeV in e+e- annihilation. A possible explanation of Y(4260) --> psi pi pi and Y(4360) --> psi' pi pi is found. We give results for all isospin and charge-conjugation combinations, and comment on flavor exotic doubly charmed states and bottomonium analogs. A search in D Dbar 3pi is recommended to test this hypothesis. Anmore » exotic 1-+ is predicted to occur in the vicinity of the Y(4260).« less
  • Within the framework of the multipole expansion in QCD it is shown that the transition from the UPSILON(3S) resonance to the spin-singlet level of bottomonium with emission of two pions, UPSILON(3S)..-->..1/sup 1/P/sub 1/..pi pi.., is suppressed by two orders of magnitude in comparison with the parton estimate used earlier, and must have a relative probability of less than 10/sup -4/. The isospin-violating single-pion transition UPSILON(3S)..-->..1/sup 1/P/sub 1/..pi../sup 0/ has an order of magnitude greater probability than the two-pion one, and can be of order 10/sup -3/ of the width of the UPSILON(3S) resonance. The reason for the small probability ofmore » the two-pion transition in question is that the anomaly in the trace of the energy-momentum tensor, which determines the width of decays of the type UPSILON'..-->..UPSILON..pi pi.., does not contribute to it.« less
