# CERN Accelerating science

The theses collection aims to cover as well as possible all theses in particle physics and its related fields.
The collection starts with the thesis of Feynman, defended in 1942, and covers now alltogether more than 3000 theses. Most of the documents are held as hard copies, theses from later years are available electronically. (Note also that many theses are not physically held by the CERN Library.)

 Constraining the Parameter Space of the Dark Energy Equation of State Using Alternative Cosmic Tracers / Chávez, Ricardo We propose to use HII galaxies (HIIG) to trace the redshift-distance relation, by means of their $L(\mathrm{H}\beta) - \sigma$ correlation, in an attempt to constrain the dark energy equation of state parameter solution space, as an alternative to the cosmological use of type Ia supernovae [...] arXiv:1410.7843 - 2014. - 218 p.

 First Observation of the Production of a Single Top Quark in Association with a W boson / Noonan, Daniel Christopher (Kansas U.) ; Baringer, Philip (dir.) (Kansas U.) A search for the production of a single top quark produced in association with a W boson is presented. The analysis is based on data collected by the Compact Muon Solenoid detector at the Large Hadron Collider, located at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. [...] CERN-THESIS-2014-157; CMS-TS-2014-034.- 2014 - 173 p. Fulltext: TS2014_034_2 - PDF; TS2014_034 - PDF;
