 Measurement of beauty quark mass at HERA and impact on Higgs production in association with beauty quarks at LHC / Gizhko, Andrii (DESY) ; Geiser, Achim (dir.) (DESY) Three diﬀerent, but related topics are the subject of this thesis, performed in the contextof the ZEUS and CMS groups at DESY. The ﬁrst measurement of the MS beauty-quarkmass mb (mb ) at an electron-proton collider is presented. [...] CMS-TS-2016-013; CERN-THESIS-2016-075.- 2016 - 87 p.

 Measurement of Double Differential $t \overline{t}$ 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 $t\overline{t}$ pairs. This enables to study the 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, produced from 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 to strongly suppress the possible background processes and leads to a higher signal purity.

 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;
