Master thesis

On 23 Februar 2007, I defended my master thesis in a public colloquium at NBI and thereby received the degree Master of Science from the University of Copenhagen (DK).

For my thesis entitled: “Electron Identification with the TRT and the W Boson Mass Measurement at ATLAS”, I worked on methods and analyses connected to the electron identification in one of the sub-detectors of the ATLAS experiment, called Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT). And the potential capabilities of the ATLAS experiment to measure the mass of the W boson. For the latter I was mainly trying to characterise the theoretical uncertainties introduced by virtual and real QED FSR.
