**Hard Interactions of Quarks and Gluons: a Primer for LHC Physics**

by J.M. Campbell, J.W. Huston, W.J. Stirling

**Publisher**: arXiv 2006**Number of pages**: 118

**Description**:

In this review article, we develop the perturbative framework for the calculation of hard scattering processes. We undertake to provide both a reasonably rigorous development of the formalism of hard scattering of quarks and gluons as well as an intuitive understanding of the physics behind the scattering. We emphasize the importance of logarithmic corrections as well as power counting of the strong coupling constant in order to understand the behavior of hard scattering processes.
