Measurement of the top-quark mass in all-jets t t-bar events in pp
collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV

CMS Collaboration
The mass of the top quark is measured using a sample of ttbar candidate events with at least six jets in the final state. The sample is selected from data collected with the CMS detector in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV in 2011 and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.54 inverse femtobarns. The mass is reconstructed for each event employing a kinematic fit of the jets to a ttbar hypothesis. The top-quark mass is measured to be 173.49 +/- 0.69 (stat.) +/- 1.21 (syst.) GeV. A combination with previously published measurements in other decay modes by CMS yields a mass of 173.54 +/- 0.33 (stat.) +/- 0.96 (syst.) GeV.
