  • Nominated by CERN as an outstanding PhD thesis
  • Guides the reader step by step through how complicated physics analyses are performed at the LHC
  • Describes novel experimental techniques implemented at the LHC
  • Recipient of the CMS prize for the best thesis of 2012
The work presented in this thesis spans a wide range of experimental particle physics subjects, starting from level-1 trigger electronics to the final results of the search for Higgs boson decay and to tau lepton pairs. The thesis describes an innovative reconstruction algorithm for tau decays and details how it was instrumental in providing a measurement of Z decay to tau lepton pairs. The reliability of the analysis is fully established by this measurement before the Higgs boson decay to tau lepton pairs is considered. The work described here continues to serve as a model for analysing CMS Higgs to tau leptons measurements.
