**Quantum Chromodynamics and Hadrons: an Elementary Introduction**

by Alexander Khodjamirian

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2003**Number of pages**: 52

**Description**:

In these lectures I will discuss the quark-gluon 'corner' ofthe Standard Model, introducing the basics of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of quark-gluon interactions. Throughout this survey, the main emphasis will be put on the relation between QCD and hadrons, the observed bound states of quarks.
