 Search for electroweak production of supersymmetric gauginos with photons at CMS / Schulz, Johannes (Aachen, Tech. Hochsch.) ; Feld, Lutz Werner (dir.) (Aachen, Tech. Hochsch.) In this thesis a search for electroweak production of gauginos in the theoretical context of gaugemediated supersymmetry is presented. Under the assumption of a bino-like mixture of the gaugeeigenstates of the lightest neutralino, being the next-to-lightest supersymmetric particle in thisanalysis, decays of the lightest neutralino into a photon and a gravitino are highly preferred.

 Analysis of the dependency of lepton selection on pileup with respect to the search for supersymmetry in dilepton events at CMS / Teroerde, Marius (Aachen, Tech. Hochsch.) ; Feld, Lutz Werner (dir.) (Aachen, Tech. Hochsch.) In this bachelor thesis, the eﬀects of pileup on the lepton selection are studied on simulated√datasets for diﬀerent pileup scenarios at s = 13 TeV. For this matter, diﬀerent quantitiesused in the lepton selection and in analyses are tested with regard to their dependencieson pileup. [...] CERN-THESIS-2014-143; CMS-TS-2014-029.- 2014 - 33 p.

 Search for supersymmetry in events with a single lepton, jets and missing transverse energy with the CMS detector at LHC / Gouskos, Loukas (UC, Santa Barbara) ; Sphicas, Paraskevas (dir.) (CERN) This thesis presents searches for supersymmetry in the single-lepton ﬁnal state, in proton-protoncollisions at center of mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC(CERN). The searches are motivated by supersymmetric models involving strong-production processes leading to large cascades of supersymetric particles.

 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;

 Differential Cross Sections for Top-Quark-Pair Production in the e/$\mu$+Jets Final State at $\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV in CMS / Goerner, Martin (Hamburg U.) ; Schleper, Peter (dir.) (Hamburg U.) The large number of top quarks produced in proton-proton (pp) collisions at the LargeHadron Collider facilitates precision measurements of top-quark properties that are crucialfor testing the consistency of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. In particular,diﬀerential measurements of the top-quark pair (tt) production cross section are essentialfor comparison with state-of-the-art predictions of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD)within the SM and for searches for new physics phenomena beyond it.
