 Optimizing the photon selection of the CMS Single-Photon search for Supersymmetry using multivariate analyses / Lange, Johannes (Aachen, Tech. Hochsch.) ; Feld, Lutz Werner (dir.) (Aachen, Tech. Hochsch.) The purpose of this thesis is to improve the photon selection of the CMS SinglePhoton search for Supersymmetry by using multivariate analyses.The Single-Photon search aims to ﬁnd Supersymmetry (SUSY) in data taken by theCompact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector at the Large Hadron Collider located atthe research center CERN. SUSY is an extension of the standard model of particlephysics. [...] CERN-THESIS-2014-134; CMS-TS-2014-027.- 2014 - 39 p. Fulltext: TS2014_027 - PDF; TS2014_027_2 - PDF;
