Abstract:
Results of searches for W' bosons using data collected by the CMS experiment in 2011 are presented. These include searches for W' bosons decaying to a lepton and a neutrino, W and Z bosons, and a top and bottom quark. The full data sample of approximately 5 fb-1 of pp collisions at a center of mass energy of 7 TeV has been analyzed for these searches. The results presented are a significant improvement over previously published results.
