THE PLA IN CHINA’S FOREIGN AND SECURITY POLICY-MAKING: DRIVERS, MECHANISM AND INTERACTIONS
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-08-11)
Abstract This dissertation develops a “dynamic bargaining” thesis, in which a two-level bargaining game among three actors (the Chinese Communist Party (Party), the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), and the civilian foreign ...
A Tale of Two Vertices: Production and Decay of the Higgs VV Vertex at the LHC
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-07-15)
In July 2012, a Higgs-like boson was observed jointly at CMS and ATLAS at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. For this thesis, we will revisit the theoretical motivation of the Higgs boson in the Standard Model, including its ...
Discovery and Characterization of a Higgs boson using four-lepton events from the CMS experiment
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-08-26)
A new particle decaying to a pair of vector bosons was discovered in 2012 by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. In the wake of this discovery a rush of measurements was made to characterize this ...
TESTBED FOR ROBOTIC TEAM-ASSISTED REPAIR: HEXAGONAL DISTRIBUTED MODULAR ROBOT II
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-10-22)
Advancements in robotics have increasingly taken robots out of controlled environments to perform in hostile conditions that increase the chance of a system fault. Currently most solutions require human intervention or, ...
Search for a massive resonance decaying to qV/VV/VH in hadronic final states
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-06-10)
Two searches for massive resonances decaying into qV/VV/VH final states are presented, in which V denotes W, Z bosons, and H denotes Higgs boson. The data analyzed corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb−1 ...
