ABOUT THESES
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.)

 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.
