  1. 1. Pair production of Higgs bosons in the final state with bottom quarks and τ leptons in the ATLAS experiment : Search results using LHC Run 2 data and prospect studies at the HL-LHC

    Author : Petar Bokan; Arnaud Ferrari; Stan Lai; Richard Brenner; Markus Klute; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Higgs boson pair production; ATLAS; LHC; HL-LHC; particle physics; Fysik med inriktning mot elementarpartikelfysik; Physics with specialization in Elementary Particle Physics;

    Abstract : After the discovery of the Higgs boson, the ultimate test of the electroweak symmetry breaking and the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics is to establish evidence of Higgs boson self-coupling, which can be achieved by searching for pair production of Higgs bosons. In addition, many theories beyond the SM predict heavy resonances that could decay into pairs of Higgs bosons. READ MORE

  2. 2. A search for leptoquarks with the ATLAS detector and hardware tracking at the High-Luminosity LHC

    Author : Mikael Mårtensson; Richard Brenner; Anders Ryd; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Leptoquarks; Hough transform; LHC; ATLAS; HL-LHC; Particle physics; Particle tracking; Cluster finding; Trigger; Fysik med inriktning mot elementarpartikelfysik; Physics with specialization in Elementary Particle Physics;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a search for pair-production of scalar leptoquarks, decaying into third-generation particles, using proton-proton collisions delivered by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and recorded by the ATLAS detector. It also presents the development of a hardware track trigger for the Phase-II upgrade of the ATLAS experiment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Identifying charged hadrons on the relativistic rise using the ALICE TPC at LHC

    Author : Philippe Gros; Partikelfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ILC; LHC; ALICE; TPC; Grid; pion spectra; Fysicumarkivet A:2011:Gros;

    Abstract : The chain from hadron collisions to the physics results requires several important links. First the outcome of the collision is measured by the detectors. Then, the signal from the detector is processed and transformed into information relevant for the study of the physics processes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Charged particle distributions and robustness of the neural network pixel clustering in ATLAS

    Author : Edvin Sidebo; Jonas Strandberg; Bengt Lund-Jensen; David Silvermyr; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; p p: scattering; ATLAS; LHC; charged particle: multiplicity; semiconductor detector: pixel; neural network: performance; track data analysis: cluster; charged particle: cluster; splitting; CERN LHC Coll; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis contains a study of the robustness of the artificial neural network used in the ATLAS track reconstruction algorithm as a tool to recover tracks in dense environments. Different variations, motivated by potential discrepancies between data and simulation, are performed to the neural network’s input while monitoring the corresponding change in the output. READ MORE
