English: An example of simulated data modeled for the CMS particle detector on the Large Hadron Collider ( LHC) at CERN. Here, following a collision of two protons, a Higgs boson is produced which decays into two jets of hadrons and two electrons. The lines represent the possible paths of particles produced by the proton-proton collision in the detector while the energy these particles deposit is shown in blue. More CMS events at CMS Media
Français : Simulation de la desintegration d'un boson de Higgs en 2 rayons de hadrons (centre, 11 heures) et 2 electrons (en bas à gauche, 5 heures) dans le detecteur CMS du LHC au CERN. Les traces denotent les particules qui ont ete produites de la collision d'une paire de protons d'ultra-haute energie. Les energies deposees par les particules dans le detecteur sont montrees en bleu pale.

Polski: Przykładowa (2008) symulacja zderzenia dwóch protonów kreujących Bozon Higgsa rozpadający się następnie na dwa strumienie hadronów (na godzinie 11 i 13) i dwa elektrony (na godzinie 17) wygenerowana dla detektora CMS Wielkiego Zderzacza Hadronów w ośrodku naukowo-badawczym CERN pod Genewą. Ślady cząstek zarejestrowane przez detektor w wyniku kolizji zaznaczono kolorem niebieskim.
Español: Un ejemplo de simulación a partir de los datos de la desintegración dos protones de muy alta energía generando un Bosón de Higgs en el decaimiento en dos haces de hadrones y dos electrones en el detector CMS del LHC en el CERN. Las lineas representan las posibles vias de desintegración, mientras que la zona en azul claro representa la energía obtenida en la desintegración de las partículas en el detector.
