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.)

The Role of Magnetic Helicity in the Structure and Heating of the Sun's Corona / Knizhnik, Kalman J
Two of the most important features of the solar atmosphere are its hot, smooth coronal loops and the concentrations of magnetic shear, known as filament channels, that reside above photospheric polarity inversion lines (PILs) [...]

Measurement of Double Differential $t \overline{t}$ Production Cross Sections with the CMS Detector / Korol, Ievgen (DESY) ; Behnke, Olaf (dir.) (DESY)
The high energy scale of the pp collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN makes this facility to a real factory for the production of $t\overline{t}$ pairs. This enables to study the top-quark properties and its production and decay mechanisms in unprecedent detail.The dileptonic decay channel of the top-quark pair, in which both W bosons, produced from the top-quark decay, decay into a lepton and neutrino, is studied in this analysis.The limitation to one electron and one muon in final state used in this work allows to strongly suppress the possible background processes and leads to a higher signal purity.
