# CERN Accelerating science

The Preprints collection aims to cover as far as possible all the grey literature in particle physics and its related technologies. The collection contains something like 400,000 documents, out of which about 50% can be accessed electronically. The documents originate from a variety of institutes all over the world. The collection, currently available, starts in 1979 and it has a full coverage of the arXiv.org e-Print archive since its beginning in 1991.

 Search for an exotic decay of the Higgs boson to a pair of light pseudoscalars in the final state with two muons and two b quarks in pp collisions at 13 TeV A search for exotic decays of the Higgs boson to a pair of light pseudoscalar particles ${{\mathrm{a}_1}}$ is performed under the hypothesis that one of the pseudoscalars decays to a pair of opposite sign muons and the other decays to $\mathrm{b\bar{b}}$.

 Reducing parasitic resonances in particle accelerators components by broadband Higher-Order-Mode couplers / Arpaia, P. (Naples U.) ; Berrig, Olav E. (CERN) ; De Vito, Luca (Sannio U.) ; Gilardi, Antonio (Naples U. ; CERN) In particle accelerator components, parasitic resonances must be reduced because they heat up the equipment and cause beam instabilities.

 Top pair production measurements, inclusive and differential / Fernandez Menendez, Javier (Oviedo U.) /ATLAS, CMS and LHCB Collaborations Recent results and state-of-the-art on top-quark pair production cross sections in both inclusive and differential measurements are presented, obtained using data collected with the ATLAS, CMS and LHCb experiments during the LHC Run1 and Run2 periods up to the year 2016 at centre-of-mass energies ranging from 5.02 to 13TeV. Results are confronted against Standard Model (SM) next-to-leading order (NLO) and next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) predictions, several Monte Carlo (MC) generators and tunes, and parton density function variations, with a special focus on the latest Run2 results..
