We report results on the nonresonant search for contact interactions (CI) sqrt(s) using data collected during the 2016 run, in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The analyzed data correspond to integrated luminosities of about 36 fb −1 . Results are interpreted in the context of left-left (LL), left-right (LR), and right-right (RR) quark and lepton compositeness models with an energy scale parameter Λ. Using information from the invariant mass and Collins-Soper angle we set 95 % confidence level lower limits on Λ for both destructive and constructive interference models.
