Generic signatures of supcrsymmetry with ñ-parity conservation include those of single isolated muons or like-sign isolated dimuon pairs, accompanied with energetic jets and missing transverse energy. The ability of CMS to discover supersymmetry with these signals is estimated for 10 fb -1 of data collected with the inclusive single-muon and dimuon high-leveltrigger paths. The selection criteria are optimized and the systematic effects are studied for a single low-mass benchmark point of the constrained MSSM with m0 = 60 GeV/c2, m1/2 = 250GeV/c 2, tan β = 10, A0 = 0 and μ > 0. Discovery contours in the (m0, m1/2) plane are presented for integrated luminosities ranging from 1 to 100 fb-1.
