 Study of the $B^0 \rightarrow K^{\ast 0}e^+ e^-$ decay with the LHCb detector and development of a novel concept of PID detector: the Focusing DIRC / Borsato, Martino Flavour-changing neutral current processes of the type $b \to s\gamma$ are forbidden at the tree level in the Standard Model (SM) and occur at leading order through radiative loop diagrams [...] CERN-THESIS-2015-219 - 205 p.

 Ricerca del decadimento raro $\textit K{^0_S}$ $\rightarrow$ $\mu +􀀀\mu^-$ a LHCb / Borgheresi, Alessio The Standard Model (SM) has proven to be excellent in describing and predicting the phenomena studied in High Energy Physics (HEP), but there are some experimental evidences that are still not explained [...] CERN-THESIS-2015-216 - 138 p.
