# CERN Accelerating science

The theses collection aims to cover as well as possible all theses in particle physics and its related fields.
The collection starts with the thesis of Feynman, defended in 1942, and covers now alltogether more than 3000 theses. Most of the documents are held as hard copies, theses from later years are available electronically. (Note also that many theses are not physically held by the CERN Library.)

 Measurement of WW production cross section in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt s$ = 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector and limits on anomalous triple-gauge-boson couplings / Chen, Karen WW production serves as an important test of the electroweak sector in the Standard Model. It can be sensitive to gauge boson self interactions as well as Higgs boson interactions. Deviations from the Standard Model prediction could arise from anomalous triple gauge couplings or the production of ne [...] 122 p.
