First Measurement of Hadronic Event Shapes in pp Collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV
Hadronic event shapes have been measured in protonproton collisions at =7 TeV, with a data sample collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. The sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.2 inverse picobarns. Eventshape distributions, corrected for detector response, are compared with five models of QCD multijet production.

Distributions of the logarithm of the central transverse thrust (top left) and central thrust minor (top right) for events with a leading jet pT between 90 and 125 GeV/c, from data and from five MC simulations. The data distribution is unfolded to allow the comparison with the MC generator level distributions. The error bars on the data points represent the statistical uncertainty on the data after the unfolding, The shaded (blue) bands represent the sum of statistical and systematic errors. The lower plots show the ratio between data and the different MC samples.

Hadronic Event Shapes in pp Collisions at 7 TeV
Abstract
Hadronic event shapes are studied with a data sample of 7 TeV protonproton collisions collected with the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The size of the sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 78 nb1. Jets constructed with different techniques are used as input for calculating eventshape variables, which probe the structure of the hadronic final state. Normalized eventshape distributions are shown to be robust against various sources of systematic uncertainty. It is demonstrated that these early measurements of eventshape variables are sensitive to differences in the modeling of QCD multijet production.
