# 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.)

 Searches for lepton number violation, and flavour violation beyond the Yukawa couplings at LHCb / Ciezarek, Gregory The Standard Model does not describe several phenomena, such as gravity and dark matter, and therefore is an incomplete description of nature [...] CERN-THESIS-2014-118 - 148 p.

 Measurement of the branching fractions of $B_s^0 \rightarrow D_s^\mp K^\pm$, $B_s^0 \rightarrow D_s^- \pi^+$ and $B^0 \rightarrow D_s^- K^+$ / Bel, Lennaert The relative branching fraction of the decay $B_s^0 \rightarrow D_s^\mp K^\pm$ with respect to $B_s^0 \rightarrow D^- \pi^+$ is determined from $pp$ collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3fb$^{-1}$ [...] CERN-THESIS-2014-112 - 63 p.
