 Search for pair production of a heavy quark decaying to top quark and photon in semi-leptonic channel with the CMS detector in the LHC / Chang, Yu-hsiang (Taiwan, Natl. Central U.) ; Chang, Yu-hsiang (dir.) (Taiwan, Natl. Central U.) Using the data collected by the CMS detector in 2012, corresponding to aluminosity of 19.7 / fb of proton-proton collisions at LHC center-of-massenergy of 8 TeV, we search for the excited top quark, T*. The decayprocess and the final states studied in our analysis are: T* T*bar -> t γtbar γ -> b W+ γ bbar W- γ, where one W boson decays hadronically andthe other leptonically, so we define a signal region by requesting eventswith 2 photons, 1 lepton and >= 4jets [...] CMS-TS-2014-018; CERN-THESIS-2014-089.- 2014 - 109 p.

 Search for Pair Production of t* to t + photon : Estimation of Photon Purity and Study of the Top and W Mass Resolution / Tsai, Fang-Ying (Taiwan, Natl. Central U.) ; Yu, Shin-Shan (dir.) (Taiwan, Natl. Central U.) Randall-Sundrum model provide a reasonable way to explain the hierarchyproblem and it predicts the lightest spin-3/2 Kaluza-Klein particle. We are searchingfor the singlet top of spin-3/2 through pair-production that may be produced at LHCenergies. [...] CERN-THESIS-2013-326; CMS-TS-2014-017.- 2014 - 68 p.

 Naturalness at the LHC / D'Agnolo, Raffaele Tito (UC, San Diego) ; Rolandi, Luigi (dir.) (CERN) ; Barbieri, Richard Alexander (dir.) (MIT) Particle physics is confronted by deep questions at the weak scale and the LHC can shed light onthem. In this work we propose strategies to understand from its data if electroweak symmetrybreaking is natural. [...] CERN-THESIS-2014-069; CMS-TS-2014-016.- 2014 - 265 p.

 Search for Contact Interactions in the di-electron channel in P-P collisions at sqrt{s} = 8 TeV at CMS / Lamichhane, Pramod A possible explanation of mass hierarchy, which is not explained by the Standard Model, is that quarks and leptons are composite objects made of more fundamental particles known as preons [...] CERN-THESIS-2013-325 FERMILAB-THESIS-2013-31. - 237 p.

 Search for Physics Beyond the Standard Model in the Opposite-Sign Same-Flavor Dilepton Final State with the CMS Detector / Buchmann, Marco-Andrea (Zurich, ETH) ; Wallny, Rainer (dir.) (Zurich, ETH) The Standard Model of particle physics has been remarkably successful in describing results of generations of collider and ﬁxed-target experiments. Despitethe model’s success, many open questions remain; an extension will be necessaryat the very least at the Planck scale, where quantum gravity must be incorporatedinto the theory [...] CERN-THESIS-2014-040; CMS-TS-2014-015.- 2014 - 171 p.

 Search for third-generation scalar leptoquarks decaying into a top quark and a tau lepton with the CMS detector / Meyer, Mareike (Hamburg U.) ; Haller, Johannes (dir.) (Hamburg U.) ; Schleper, Peter (dir.) In this thesis a search for pair production of third-generation scalar leptoquarks is presented.Leptoquarks are new bosons predicted by many theories beyond the Standard Model. Theycouple to a quark and a lepton. [...] CERN-THESIS-2013-316; CMS-TS-2014-014.- 94 p. Fulltext: TS2014_014 - PDF; TS2014_014_2 - PDF;
