Project description

This project will contribute to establish a research team at the new LHC collider at CERN, turning on this summer. With the CMS experiment taking data at the LHC, we explore the properties of the top quark, the most heaviest fermion known today, and measure its production corss section and various properties including mass and couplings to other particles.
