Phenomenology of Diffractive Higgs Production and Large Extra Dimensions

Author

  • Malin Sjödahl

Summary, in English

This thesis is based on phenomenological predictions for high energy particle collisions from two different theoretical models. The first two papers deal with uncertainties in exclusive reactions of type



proton + proton -> proton + proton + Higgs.



The other four papers concern gravitational scattering and black hole production in the scenario of large extra dimensions.
