Şahin, Mehmet Özgür
In this thesis, analysis of the forward backward asymmetry of high energy electron pairs at the CMS - LHC with a centre of mass energy of 7 TeV is presented and the possibility of search for a new neutral weak boson Z’ via measuring the forward backward asymmetry AFB of high energy electron pairs is discussed. The forward backward asymmetry is a natural result of the interference between the neutral current mediators: Photon and Z boson. A new neutral gauge boson would also interfere with these mediators and this new interference would either enhance the forward backward asymmetry at high energies or suppress it. In this analysis, 4.67 fb−1 data collected at the CMS experiment in 2011 is used.

Search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2012-06-01)
A search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is performed using a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.6 fb(-1) recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The search is sensitive to both the standard model Higgs boson and to the neutral Higgs bosons predicted by the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM). No excess of events is observed in the tau-pair invariant-mass spectrum. For a standard model Higgs boson in the mass...
Search for resonances in the dijet mass spectrum from 7 TeV pp collisions at CMS
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2011-10-01)
A search for narrow resonances with a mass of at least 1 TeV in the dijet mass spectrum is performed using pp collisions at root s = 7 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1 fb(-1), collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. No resonances are observed. Upper limits at the 95% confidence level are presented on the product of the resonance cross section, branching fraction into dijets, and acceptance, separately for decays into quark-quark, quark-gluon, and gluon-gluon pairs. The data exclude new...
Search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a top-quark pair in pp collisions at the LHC
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-05-01)
A search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a top-quark pair is presented using data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb(-1) (5.1 fb-1) collected in pp collisions at the center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV (8 TeV). Events are considered where the top-quark pair decays to either one lepton+jets (t (t) over bar -> l nu q (q) over bar 'b (b) over bar) or dileptons (t (t) over bar -> l(+)nu l-nu b (b) over bar), being an electron or a muon. The search is optimized...
Search for excited leptons in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2013-03-01)
Results are presented of a search for compositeness in electrons and muons using a data sample of pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy root s = 7 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb(-1). Excited leptons (l*) are assumed to be produced via contact interactions in conjunction with a standard model lepton and to decay via l* -> l gamma, yielding a final state with two energetic leptons and a photon. The number of events observed in data is ...
Search for supersymmetry with Higgs boson to diphoton decays using the razor variables at root s=13 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2018-04-01)
An inclusive search for anomalous Higgs boson production in the diphoton decay channel and in association with at least one jet is presented, using LHC proton-proton collision data collected by the CMS experiment at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb(-1). The razor variables M-R and R-2, as well as the momentum and mass resolution of the diphoton system, are used to categorize events into different search regions. The search result is interpreted in th...
