**Introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory**

by Thomas Becher, Alessandro Broggio, Andrea Ferroglia

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 166

**Description**:

These lectures provide an introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory. After discussing the expansion of Feynman diagrams around the high-energy limit, the effective Lagrangian is constructed, first for a scalar theory, then for QCD. The underlying concepts are illustrated with the Sudakov form factor...
