Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. The angular distributions and the differential branching fraction of the decay ${\rm B}^0 \to {\rm K^*(892)}^0 \mu^+ \mu^-$ are studied using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.5 fb$^{-1}$ collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV. From 1430 signal decays, the forward-backward asymmetry of the muons, the ${\rm K^*(892)}^0$ longitudinal polarization fraction, and the differential branching fraction are determined as a function of the dimuon invariant mass squared. UPDATE (16 MAY 2017): changed 0.64 to 0.63 for FL in first bin of Table 2 on request of Mauro Dinardo (CMS).
