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.)

 Dispersive Treatments of $K_{\ell4}$ Decays and Hadronic Light-by-Light Scattering / Stoffer, Peter In this thesis, I present dispersive treatments of two hadronic processes: the semileptonic kaon decay $K_{\ell4}$ and hadronic light-by-light scattering [...] arXiv:1412.5171 - 2014. - 312 p.

 Extraction of CP Properties of the H(125) Boson Discovered in Proton-Proton Collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 and 8 TeV with the CMS Detector at the LHC / Chen, Yi (Caltech) ; Spiropulu, Maria (dir.) (Caltech) In this thesis we build a novel analysis framework to perform the direct extraction ofall possible eﬀective Higgs boson couplings to the neutral electroweak gauge bosonsin the H → ZZ (∗) → 4 channel also referred to as the golden channel. We use analytic expressions of the full decay diﬀerential cross sections for the H → V V → 4process, and the dominant irreducible standard model q q → 4 background where¯4 = 2e2µ, 4e, 4µ.
