Description

Leptoquarks are hypothetical particles carrying both lepton and quark flavor. They are predicted by Grand Unified Theories, technicolor and composite models among others. Results from the searches for pair production of first and second generation leptoquarks at the CMS experiment with 7 TeV data are presented.
