Description

The "razor" at the LHC refers to a set of kinematical variables used to discriminate heavy new physics against standard model processes. The empirical modeling of the variables and their correlation leads to good sensitivity to new physics. In this talk we present some of the latest results obtained with the razor technique in CMS, ranging from SUSY to more exotic searches.
