[This chapter gives an overview of the Standard Model of particle physics, and in particular the Higgs boson, from a historical perspective. The key discoveries that led to the formulation of the Standard Model are presented, concluding with the limitations of the Standard Model and the...
[This chapter describes the experimental setup for the analyses described in the thesis. The Large Hadron Collider and the various parts of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment, as well as the data collection procedure, are presented.]
[This chapter provides a detailed description of the alignment and calibration procedure for the CMS detector’s silicon tracker. The algorithms used to align the detector are presented and the plots used to validate the results of that alignment are shown. The chapter also explains methods for...
[This chapter describes the Higgs boson’s interactions with other particles and provides a theoretical basis for the experimental analyses discussed in the next chapter. Special attention is given to matrix element calculations and their uses in producing Monte Carlo simulations of Higgs boson...
[This chapter presents a series of analyses, increasing in complexity and precision, to measure anomalous couplings of the Higgs boson. The later measurements in the sequence use the Higgs boson’s decay to four leptons onshell and offshell, its production in association with jets or top quarks,...
[This chapter summarizes the results obtained in the previous chapters and presents several extensions of this analysis that can be performed in the future. Projections of an analysis identical to the current one using the data to be collected over the next few years are shown, and possible...
