Description of event

The CMS experiment at the LHC has a complete muon system, which uses several different technologies to trigger, identify muons and measure their momentum. This capacity to measure muons was critical in the discovery of the Higgs boson and stays very important for all searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model. After 10 years of operation, its performance is still very high. I will present first of all the status of this subsystem of CMS. I will also describe how this muon system will be extended during the next long shutdowns of the LHC.


I will emphasize several works performed in coordination with Atomki and the future tasks I propose to work for Atomki.
