CERN Accelerating science

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.)

Flavour studies with LHCb: b-meson mixing, lepton-flavour violation and the velo upgrade / Bird, Thomas
Semileptonic $B$ decays of the type $B^0_q\to{}D^-_q\mu^+\nu$ (where $D^-\to{}K^-K^+\pi^-$) are selected and their lifetimes are corrected using a statistical simulation-based correction called the $k$-factor [...]
