Upgrades to the D0 muon system
by Braunlich, Martin, M.S., Northern Illinois University, 2010, 45; 1488405
Abstract (Summary)

Run I of the Fermilab Tevatron Collider ended in 1996. There were a number of improvements to the D0 muon detector for Run II. Some of these improvements take into account improvements in the Tevatron itself. Tevatron operations resumed in 2001 (Run II) and 7.6 fb -1 have been collected through the end of 2009. This thesis describes the Run II D0 muon system and its improvements. It also includes discussion of muon system operations and a discussion of how muons are identified.
