 A Search For New Physics in Events with Two Photons and Missing Transverse Energy in Proton-Proton Collisions at $\sqrt{s}=8$ $TeV$ / Morse, David Michael (Notre Dame U.) ; Hildreth, Michael (dir.) (Notre Dame U.) This dissertation describes a search for new physics that has been performed atthe Compact Muon Solenoid experiment. The search makes use of an integratedL = 19.5 f b−1 of data taken during the 2012 proton-proton collisions√at center of mass energy s = 8 TeV produced by the Large Hadron Collider nearluminosity CERN-THESIS-2013-054; CMS-TS-2013-010.- 2013 - 121 p.

 Search for a Neutral Higgs Boson decaying to Tau Leptons using CMS at the LHC / Swanson, Joshua (Wisconsin U., Madison) ; Smith, Wesley (dir.) (Wisconsin U., Madison) This thesis presents a search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying to a τ τ pairusing CMS data recorded at the LHC with 7 TeV and 8 TeV center of mass energyduring 2011 and 2012 respectively. The search is performed using two channels τµ τhand τe τh where τe , τµ represent a τ decay to an electron or muon and τh represents aτ decay to hadron(s) [...] CERN-THESIS-2013-053; CMS-TS-2013-009.- 2013 - 118 p.

 Searches for Z' and Higgs Bosons Decaying into Hadronic Tau Pairs at CMS/LHC / Valls, Nil (Notre Dame U.) ; Hildreth, Michael (dir.) (Notre Dame U.) byNil VallsAn elegant solution to the mystery of electroweak symmetry breaking and theorigin of mass was proposed in the 1960s, yet it has taken several generations ofparticle accelerators and detectors to discover the ﬁrst strong candidate for the socalled Higgs boson, which is implied by the theory. A positive identiﬁcation wouldcomplete the Standard Model (SM), the most successful description of elementaryparticles and interactions to date [...] CERN-THESIS-2013-056; CMS-TS-2013-008.- 2013 - 247 p.
