Limitations and gaps in the Standard Model of particle physics motivate a continued search for new data to support, or discredit, new and more complete models of Nature. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), located at CERN, and its future High Luminosity upgrade, the High Luminosity LHC are designed for this purpose. The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the LHC is designed to enable searches for a wide variety of new physics. An overview and description of the LHC and the CMS detector are given in this chapter.
