 Measurement of Double Differential t t Production Cross Sections with the CMS Detector / Korol, Ievgen (DESY) ; Behnke, Olaf (dir.) (DESY) The high energy scale of the pp collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN¯makes this facility to a real factory for the production of tt pairs. This enables to studythe top-quark properties and its production and decay mechanisms in unprecedent detail.The dileptonic decay channel of the top-quark pair, in which both W bosons, producedfrom the top-quark decay, decay into a lepton and neutrino, is studied in this analysis.The limitation to one electron and one muon in ﬁnal state used in this work allows tostrongly suppress the possible background processes and leads to a higher signal purity.√About 40k events with a top-quark pair have been selected using the s = 8 TeV datarecorded with the CMS detector in the year 2012.

 Test Beam Measurements for the Upgrade of the CMS Pixel Detector and Measurement of the Top Quark Mass from Differential Cross Sections / Spannagel, Simon (DESY) ; Eckstein, Doris (dir.) (DESY) In this dissertation, two diﬀerent topics are addressed which are vital for the realization ofmodern high-energy physics experiments: detector development and data analysis. The ﬁrst partfocuses on the development and characterization of silicon pixel detectors [...] CMS-TS-2016-010; CERN-THESIS-2016-059.- 2016 - 275 p. Fulltext: TS2016_010_2 - PDF; TS2016_010 - PDF;
