  • Bertolini, Daniele, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis we study possible deviations from the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism as predicted by the Standard Model (SM), and we introduce a new framework to analyze hadronic final states at colliders. In the ...
  • Deck, Katherine Michele (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    A large population of low-mass exoplanets with short orbital periods has been discovered using the transit method. At least 40% of these planets are actually part of compact systems with more than one planet. The closeness ...
  • Dyer, Ethan Stanley (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis we discuss aspects of strongly coupled gauge theories in two and three dimensions. In three dimensions, we present results for the scaling dimension and transformation properties of monopole operators in ...
  • Golyk, Vladyslav Alexander (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We study fluctuation-induced phenomena in systems out of thermal equilibrium, resulting from the stochastic nature of quantum and thermal fluctuations of electromagnetic currents and waves. Specifically, we study radiative ...
  • Ojeda, Roberto Sanchis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Over the past 20 years, approximately 1700 planets outside of the solar system have been found. Known as exoplanets, they represent a great opportunity to answer some of the deepest questions about the origin and evolution ...
