Recent Higgs results from CMS experiment
In July 2012 CMS announced the discovery of a new boson with properties resembling those of the long-sought Higgs boson. The analysis of the proton-proton collision data recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5.1 fb^-1 at √s = 7 TeV and 19.6 fb^-1 at √s = 8 TeV, confirm the Higgs-like nature of the new boson, with a signal strength associated with vector bosons and fermions consistent with the expectations for a standard model Higgs boson, and spin-parity clearly favouring the scalar nature of the new boson. In this talk the updated results of the CMS experiment and recent property measurements will be reviewed
