Kyungpook National University (KNU) has been a member of CMS since June 1997. The KNU-CMS group consists of five professors, five research scientists, two technical engineers, four PhD students and five Master’s students.
The group’s activities for physics analyses and service works concern Supersymmetry-like final states with boosted W bosons and top quarks, and with short tracks disappearing within the Tracker; Higgs boson’s off-shell production; searches for dark matter using events containing an imbalance in transverse momentum and one or more energetic jets; searches for heavy neutral gauge bosons decaying to two muons in bottom-quark-fusion processes; CP violation in the top-quark-pair system; searches for charged heavy gauge boson decaying to a lepton and neutrinos; searches for new physics with tau or top particles in final states; Trigger development for vector-boson fusion (VBF) and anomalous gauge particle couplings in VBF processes.
In addition, the group contributes to service work by leading the Fast Simulation group; by contributing to the Phase-1 HCAL Upgrade studies and the Phase-2 Upgrade of the CMS Level-1 Trigger for the Pixel Tracker; by working on the particle flow hadron calibration at the High-Level Trigger, the measurement of Jet/MET Trigger efficiencies, the development of prompt DQM monitoring for Jet/ MET, and the Jet/MET Trigger validations released by Trigger Study Group and AlCa in Jet/MET Trigger development group; and by operating the a Tier-2 computing centre.
