With the VISPA internet platform you can perform physics analyses with CMS public data in a web browser. Begin with the discovery of a boson in an example analysis. Then, you can develop your own ideas and visualise the scientific results.VISPA is developed at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany and is used for teaching data analysis, e.g. in courses on particle and astroparticle physics for third-year undergraduate physics students.
This tutorial is using a small fraction (50 pb-1) of real CMS data taken in 2011, stored in plain root tuples, to facilitate simplified analysis (the CMS collaboration board has agreed that this particular dataset can be released for educational purposes).
The open data are released under the Creative
Commons CC0 waiver. Neither the experiment(s) ( CMS ) nor CERN endorse any
works, scientific or otherwise, produced using these data.
All releases will have a unique DOI that you are requested to cite in any applications or
