Top Dozen Publications

In the following, some context and background information to the dozen selected papers is provided:
Buchmueller is a founder and PI of the next-generation Atom Interferometric Observatory and Network (AION) project . The first stage of the project was recently funded with about £10M by UK funding agencies and universities. It will enable exploration of the properties of ultra-light dark matter (DM) and gravitational waves (GWs) from the very early universe and astrophysical sources in the mid-frequency band ranging from several mHz to a few Hz, inaccessible by other means. The AION science programme spans a wide range of fundamental physics and aligns fully with the top priorities of international communities. In addition, AION also strongly contributes to the design study of a mission proposal for an Atomic Experiment for Dark Matter and Gravity Exploration in Space (AEDGE) , for which I am the lead author. The AEDGE mission concept is currently under review by European Space Agency (ESA). AEDGE will be based on AION technology. With more than 130 proponents from over 70 institutions in 35 countries, AEDGE enjoys already broad international support.

Buchmueller leads a strong analysis team that produced several high-profile publications for missing energy searches. Among them the first search for SUSY at the LHC . With more than 750 citations this search is among the best-cited single analyses in CMS. Representative for this work I provide the first two publications of this analysis [3,4]. The other papers are 10.1007/JHEP01(2013)077, 10.1140/epjc/s10052-013-2568-6.

As the chair of the Analysis Review Committee (ARC) of the Higgs to di-photon analysis in CMS, Buchmueller made very significant contributions to the Higgs discovery in CMS. The ARC is an important institution in the CMS scrutiny and publication process of an analysis. As the chair of this ARC he followed the Higgs to di-photon analysis from its conception in 2010 to the discovery in 2012 and made very significant contributions to the below listed papers [5,6].

 V. Khachatryan, et al. (CMS), Eur. Phys. J. C74, 10, 3076 (2014), 1407.0558
After Buchmueller went back to CERN in 2004 to join the CMS experiment, he completed his work at his former experiment BABAR at SLAC with the publication listed below that summarized three BABAR papers that he was spearheading as a Research Associated at SLAC.

Particle Data Review:
In 2011 Buchmueller was asked to become a member of the Particle Data Group (PDG). The PDG is an international collaboration charged with summarizing Particle Physics, as well as related areas of Cosmology and Astrophysics.
The summaries are published in even-numbered years as a now 1340-page book, the Review of Particle Physics, and as an abbreviated version (294 pages), the Particle Physics Booklet. The Review is published in a major journal, and in addition the PDG distributes 16,000 copies of it and 31,000 copies of the Booklet. The Review has been called the bible of particle physics; over the years, it has been cited in 30,000 papers.
His contributions to this important summary document are review articles about the search for supersymmetry
Dark Matter phenomenology:
In the past years Buchmueller led the development of simplified DM models that can be used to better characterize and compare DM searches. The main thrust of this work is summarized in the below listed two publications.
 O. Buchmueller, M. J. Dolan, C. McCabe, JHEP 1401, 025 (2014), 111, 1308.6799
 O. Buchmueller, M. J. Dolan, S. A. Malik, et al., JHEP 1501, 037 (2015), 56, 1407.8257
In his role as one of the leaders of the LHC DM working group:
he made very important contributions to recommendation papers that outline how simplified models should be used in collider DM searches. The most recent one is listed here:
 A. Boveia, O. Buchmueller, C. Doglioni, et al. (2016), 1603.04156
In 2007 Buchmueller initiated the MasterCode collaboration bringing together theorists and experimentalists to develop a consistent framework for the interpretation of LHC results in light of collider data and indirect particle, astroparticle and cosmology constraints.
Today the MasterCode collaboration [http://mastercode.web.cern.ch/mastercode/] is one of the strongest scientific activities in the field of global fits to collider and cosmology data, and has produced more than a dozen high impact publications, which have accumulated more than 1000 citations so far.
As representatives of this work, below a listing of the first of these publications:
