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  Dynamics of a Quantum Spin Liquid 
Author(s)  Knolle, Johannes 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 140 p. 46 illus., 4 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents an exact theoretical study of dynamical correlation functions in different phases of a??twodimensional quantum spin liquid. By calculating the dynamical spin structure factor and the Raman scattering cross section, this??thesis shows that there are salient signatures???qualitative and quantitative???of the Majorana fermions and the gauge fluxes emerging as effective degrees of freedom in the exactly solvable Kitaev honeycomb lattice model. The model is a representative of a class of spin liquids with Majorana fermions coupled to Z2 gauge fields. The qualitative features of the response functions should therefore be characteristic for this broad class of topological states

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  Relativistic ManyBody Theory : A New FieldTheoretical Approach 
Author(s)  Lindgren, Ingvar 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVII, 406 p. 151 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This revised second edition of the author???s classic text offers readers a comprehensively updated review of relativistic atomic manybody theory, covering the many developments in the field since the publication of the original title. In particular, a new final section extends the scope to cover the evaluation of QED effects for dynamical processes. The treatment of the book is based upon quantumfield theory, and demonstrates that when the procedure is carried to all orders of perturbation theory, twoparticle systems are fully compatible with the relativistically covariant BetheSalpeter equation. This procedure can be applied to arbitrary openshell systems, in analogy with the standard manybody theory, and it is also applicable to systems with more than two particles. Presently existing theoretical procedures for treating atomic systems are, in several cases, insufficient to explain the accurate experimental data recently obtained, particularly for highly charged ions. The main text is divided into three parts. In Part I, the standard timeindependent and timedependent perturbation procedures are reviewed. This includes a new section at the end of chapter 2 concerning the socalled ???Fockspace procedure??? or ???Coulombonly procedure??? for relativisticQED calculations. This is a procedure on an intermediate level, frequently u sed in recent time by chemists on molecular systems, where a full QED treatment is out of question. Part II describes three methods for QED calculations, a) the standard Smatrix formulation, b) the Twotimes Green???sfunction method, developed by the St Petersburg Atomic Theory group, and c) the Covariantevolution operator (CEO) method, recently developed by the Gothenburg Atomic Theory group. In Part III, the CEO method is combined with electron correlation to arbitrary order to a unified MBPTQED procedure. The new Part IV includes two new chapters dealing with dynamical properties and how QED effects can be evaluated for such processes. This part is much needed as there has been an increasing interest in the study of QED effects for such processes. All methods treated in the book are illustrated with numerical examples, making it a text suitable for advanced students new to the field and a useful reference for established researchers

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
