Description

A search for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) is performed using events with at least three leptons and any number of jets. The search is performed in data collected in 2011 by the CMS experiment at the LHC in pp-collisions at a center of mass energy of 7 TeV. Numerous leptonic channels have been investigated in an exclusive manner and data-driven techniques are used to quantify the SM backgrounds. The results are used to constrain hitherto unexplored regions of supersymmetry that have significant multilepton yield at 7 TeV pp-collisions.
