Description

Measurement of the top quark pair and single top production cross section at 7TeV are presented, using CMS data collected in 2010 and 2011. The ttbar inclusive cross section are measured in fully hadronic, di-leptonic (including tau lepton) and tau plus jets final states. Differential cross section of the ttbar cross section production and the top quark pairs charge asymmetry are presented as well. The results are combined and confronted with precise theory calculation. The measure of the top pairs invariant mass distribution are used to search for new particle decaying to top pairs
