We present a search for a kinematic edge in the invariant mass distribution of two opposite-sign same-flavor leptons, in final states with jets and missing transverse energy. The analysis makes use of 19.4 fb−1 proton-proton collision data at √s = 8 TeV. The data have been recorded with the CMS experiment. Complementary methods have been used for the background estimation, which when combined achieve a total uncertainty of 5% (10%) for leptons in the central (forward) rapidity of the detector. We do not observe a statistically significant signal and the results are consistent with the background-only hypothesis.
