Publisher: arXiv.org
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.

We review the theory of hadronic atoms in QCD + QED based on a non-relativistic effective Lagrangian framework. We provide an introduction to the theory and describe several applications: meson-meson, meson-nucleon atoms and meson-deuteron compounds.
