Description

First normalized differential cross sections in top quark pair events are presented. All results are based on pp-collision data at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV recorded in 2011 by the CMS detector. The measurements are performed in the semileptonic and dileptonic decay modes of the top quark pair with events containing either one or two isolated leptons (electrons or muons), missing transverse energy and jets. As differential variables kinematic properties of the top quark pair, of the top quark itself and of the leptons are addressed. Analysis techniques as well as comparisons with theory predictions will be illustrated.
