 Measurement of Spin Correlations in $t\overline{t}$ Systems in the muon+jets Channel using a Matrix Element Method with the CMS Detector at the LHC. / Beernaert, Kelly Simone (Gent U.) ; Yazgan, Efe (dir.) (Gent U.) ; Ryckbosch, Dirk (dir.) (Gent U.) ; Grunewald, Martin (dir.) (University Coll., Dublin) In this work, the consistency of the spin correlation strength in top quark pair events with theStandard Model (SM) prediction is tested in the muon+jets ﬁnal state. The events are obtained√from pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of s = 8 TeV, corresponding to an integratedluminosity of 19.7 fb−1 . [...] CERN-THESIS-?; CMS-TS-2015-022.- 2015 - 302 p.

 Precise measurement of the top-quark mass at the CMS experiment using the ideogram method / Seidel, Markus (Hamburg U.) ; Schleper, Peter (dir.) (Hamburg U.) ; Stadie, Hartmut (dir.) (Hamburg U.) The mass of the top quark is measured using a sample of tt candidate events with oneelectron or muon and at least four jets in the ﬁnal state, collected by CMS in proton√proton collisions at s = 8 TeV at the LHC. The candidate events are selected fromdata corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb−1 . [...] CMS-TS-2015-020; CERN-THESIS-2015-134.- 2015 - 203 p.

 Search for SUperSYmmetry (SUSY) in Opposite Sign (OS) di-lepton final states with Parked Data collected at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV using the CMS detector / Bhattacharya, Saptaparna (Northwestern U.) ; Landsberg, Greg (dir.) (Brown U.) The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has had a very successful data-taking phase with Run 1. After the discovery of the Higgs, confirming the predictions of the Standard Model (SM), the focus is on finding new physics, especially in the context of supersymmetry (SUSY).
