Title  Search for Supersymmetry in pp Collisions at ???s = 8 TeV with a Photon, Lepton, and Missing Transverse Energy 
Author(s)  Iiyama, Yutaro 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 174 p. 68 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This Ph.D. thesis is a search for physics beyond the standard model (SM) of particle physics, which successfully describes the interactions and properties of all known elementary particles. However, no particle exists in the SM that can account for the dark matter, which makes up about one quarter of the energymass content of the universe. Understanding the nature of dark matter is one goal of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The extension of the SM with supersymmetry (SUSY) is considered a promising possibilities to explain dark matter. The nominated thesis describes a search for SUSY using data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. It utilizes a final state consisting of a photon, a lepton, and a large momentum imbalance probing a class of SUSY models that has not yet been studied extensively. The thesis stands out not only due to its content that is explained with clarity but also because the author performed more or less all aspects of the thesis analysis by himself, from data skimming to limit calculations, which is extremely rare, especially nowadays in the large LHC collaborations

Title  High Jet Multiplicity Physics at the LHC 
Author(s)  Crisp??n Ortuzar, Mireia 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXII, 177 p. 95 illus., 62 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes research in two different areas of stateoftheart hadron collider physics, both of which are of central importance in the field of particle physics. The first part of the book focuses on the search for supersymmetric particles called gluinos. The book subsequently presents a set of precision measurements of ???multijet??? collision events, which involve large numbers of newly created particles, and are among the dominant processes at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Now that a Higgs boson has been discovered at the LHC, the existence (or nonexistence) of supersymmetric particles is of the utmost interest and significance, both theoretically and experimentally. In addition, multijet collision events are an important background process for a wide range of analyses, including searches for supersymmetry

Title  First Measurement of Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillation at T2K 
Author(s)  Duffy, Kirsty Elizabeth 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 172 p. 87 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis reports the measurement of muon neutrino and antineutrino disappearance and electron neutrino and antineutrino appearance in a muon neutrino and antineutrino beam using the T2K experiment. It describes a result in neutrino physics that is a pioneering indication of chargeparity (CP) violation in neutrino oscillation; the first to be obtained from a single experiment. Neutrinos are some of the most abundant???but elusive???particles in the universe, and may provide a promising place to look for a potential solution to the puzzle of matter/antimatter imbalance in the observable universe. It has been firmly established that neutrinos can change flavour (or ???oscillate???), as recognised by the 2015 Nobel Prize. The theory of neutrino oscillation allows for neutrinos and antineutrinos to oscillate differently (CP violation), and may provide insights into why our universe is matterdominated. Bayesian statistical methods, including the Markov Chain Monte Carlo fitting technique, are used to simultaneously optimise several hundred systematic parameters describing detector, beam, and neutrino interaction uncertainties as well as the six oscillation parameters

Title  Supersymmetry and Noncommutative Geometry 
Author(s)  Beenakker, Wim;van den Broek, Thijs;Suijlekom, Walter D 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  X, 137 p. 27 illus., 15 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this work the question whether noncommutative geometry allows for supersymmetric theories is addressed. Noncommutative geometry has seen remarkable applications in high energy physics, viz. the geometrical interpretation of the Standard Model, however such a question has not been answered in a conclusive way so far. The book starts with a systematic analysis of the possibilities for socalled almostcommutative geometries on a 4dimensional, flat background to exhibit not only a particle content that is eligible for supersymmetry, but also have a supersymmetric action. An approach is proposed in which the basic `building blocks' of potentially supersymmetric theories and the demands for their action to be supersymmetric are identified. It is then described how a novel kind of soft supersymmetry breaking Lagrangian arises naturally from the spectral action. Finally, the above formalism is applied to explore the existence of a noncommutative version of the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model. This book is intended for mathematical/theoretical physicists with an interest in the applications of noncommutative geometry to supersymmetric field theories

Title  Higgs Properties at the LHC : Implications for the Standard Model and for Cosmology 
Author(s)  Yue, Jason Tsz Shing 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 130 p. 35 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis studies the properties of the Higgs particle, discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, in order to elucidate its role in electroweak symmetry breaking and cosmological phase transition in the early universe. It shows that a generic spin2 Higgs impostor is excluded by the precision measurements of electroweak observables and perturbative unitarity considerations. It obtains LHC constraints on anomalous CPviolating HiggsTop Yukawa couplings and examines the prospects of their measurement in future experiments. Lastly, it discusses in detail the electroweak phase transition and generation of cosmological matter???antimatter asymmetry in the universe with anomalous Higgs couplings

Title  Study of Double Parton Scattering in Photon + 3 Jets Final State : In ProtonProton Collisions at ???s = 7TeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC 
Author(s)  Chang, YouHao 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 101 p. 49 illus., 43 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book mainly focuses on the study of photon + 3 jets final state in ProtonProton Collisions at ???s = 7TeV, searching for patterns of two (or more) distinct hard scatterings in the same collision, i.e the socalled Double Parton Scattering (DPS). A new method by using Monte Carlo generators was performed and provides higher order corrections to the description of the Single Parton Scattering (SPS) background. Further it is investigated whether additional contributions from DPS can improve the agreement between the measured data and the Monte Carlo predictions. The current theoretical uncertainties related to the SPS background are found to be larger than expectation. At the same time a rich set of DPSsensitive measurements is reported for possible further interpretation

Title  The Electron Mass and Calcium Isotope Shifts : HighPrecision Measurements of BoundElectron gFactors of Highly Charged Ions 
Author(s)  K??hlerLanges, Florian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 168 p. 69 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents the first isotopeshift measurement of boundelectron gfactors of highly charged ions and determines the most precise value of the electron mass in atomic mass units, which exceeds the value in the literature by a factor of 13. As the lightest fundamental massive particle, the electron is one of nature???s few central building blocks. A precise knowledge of its intrinsic properties, such as its mass, is mandatory for the most accurate tests in physics  the Quantum Electrodynamics tests that describe one of the four established fundamental interactions in the universe. The underlying measurement principle combines a highprecision measurement of the Larmortocyclotron frequency ratio on a single hydrogenlike carbon ion studied in a Penning trap with very accurate calculations of the socalled boundelectron gfactor. Here, the gfactors of the valence electrons of two lithiumlike calcium isotopes have been measured with relative uncertainties of a few 10^{10}, constituting an as yet unrivaled level of precision for lithiumlike ions. These calcium isotopes provide a unique system across the entire nuclear chart to test the pure relativistic nuclear recoil effect

Title  TopQuark Pair Production Cross Sections and Calibration of the TopQuark MonteCarlo Mass : Measurements Performed with the CMS Detector Using LHC Run I ProtonProton Collision Data 
Author(s)  Kieseler, Jan 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 167 p. 52 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents the first experimental calibration of the topquark MonteCarlo mass. It also provides the topquark massindependent and most precise topquark pair production crosssection measurement to date. The most precise measurements of the topquark mass obtain the topquark mass parameter (MonteCarlo mass) used in simulations, which are partially based on heuristic models. Its interpretation in terms of mass parameters used in theoretical calculations, e.g. a running or a pole mass, has been a longstanding open problem with farreaching implications beyond particle physics, even affecting conclusions on the stability of the vacuum state of our universe. In this thesis, this problem is solved experimentally in three steps using data obtained with the compact muon solenoid (CMS) detector. The most precise topquark pair production crosssection measurements to date are performed. The MonteCarlo mass is determined and a new method for extracting the topquark mass from theoretical calculations is presented. Lastly, the topquark production crosssections are obtained ??? for the first time ??? without residual dependence on the topquark mass, are interpreted using theoretical calculations to determine the topquark running and pole mass with unprecedented precision, and are fully consistently compared with the simultaneously obtained topquark MonteCarlo mass

Title  Observation of ??_???????_e Oscillation in the T2K Experiment 
Author(s)  Ieki, Kei 
Publication  Tokyo, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Japan, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 199 p. 156 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this thesis the author contributes to the analysis of neutrino beam data collected between 2010 and 2013 to identify ?????????e events at the SuperKamiokande detector. In particular, the author improves the pion???nucleus interaction uncertainty, which is one of the dominant systematic error sources in T2K neutrino oscillation measurement. In the thesis, the measurement of ?????????e oscillation in the T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) experiment is presented and a new constraint on ??CP is obtained. This measurement and the analysis establish, at greater than 5?? significance, the observation of ?????????e oscillation for the first time in the world. Combining the T2K ?????????e oscillation measurement with the latest findings on oscillation parameters including the world average value of ??13 from reactor experiments, the constraint on the value of ??CP at the 90% confidence level is obtained. This constraint on ??CP is an important step towards the discovery of CP violation in the lepton sector.
