1. Louis James Antonelli. A Search for the Higgs Boson Decaying to Tau Pairs at the CMS Experiment</h1>.

Degree: PhD, Physics, 2012, University of Notre Dame

This thesis describes an experimental search for the Higgs boson. The search has been carried out at the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment using proton- proton collisions produced by the Large Hadron Collider. The dataset analyzed corresponds to the 4.6 fb-1 of data taken at √s = 7 TeV during the 2011 running period. This analysis attempts to identify events in which a Higgs decays to two tau leptons and one tau decays electronically and the other decays hadronically. A search is performed for a Higgs as predicted by the Standard Model of Particle Physics, and additionally a search is conducted for a Higgs in the context of the Minimally Supersymmetric Standard Model. The results are consistent with the background expectations and so upper limits are placed on the Higgs production cross-section times the branching ratio to tau leptons. In the Standard Model Higgs search, this analysis is able to exclude a Higgs at roughly 5x the Standard Model prediction. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Randal Ruchti, Committee Member, Dr. Michael Hildreth, Committee Member, Dr. Jonathan Sapirstein, Committee Member, Dr. Colin Jessop, Committee Chair.

2. Tessa Jae Pearson. Top Pair Differential Cross Section Measurement in the Muon+Jets Channel at √s=8 TeV with the Compact Muon Solenoid</h1>.

Degree: PhD, Physics, 2013, University of Notre Dame

The following dissertation describes the measurement of the top pair differential cross section in the semi-leptonic, μ+jets, channel taken with respect to the invariant mass of the top pair system. This measurement was performed using the Compact Muon Solenoid, an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider located at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. The 2012 dataset was used with a total of 19.44 fb-1 of data recorded at a center of mass energy of √s = 8 TeV. The top pair differential cross section with respect to the invariant mass was found, within uncertainties, to agree well with the leading theoretical models. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Kevin Lannon, Committee Chair, Dr. Terrence Rettig, Committee Member, Dr. John LoSecco, Committee Member, Dr. Antonio Delgado, Committee Member, Dr. Randal Ruchti, Committee Member.
