An Introduction to QED and QCD
by N. J. Evans
Number of pages: 61
The aim of this course is to teach you how to calculate transition amplitudes, cross sections and decay rates, for elementary particles in the highly successful theories of Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) and Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). Most of our work will be in understanding how to compute in QED.

The aim of this introduction to lattice QCD is to provide people working in related areas with a rough overview of lattice techniques, what they are able to provide today and what their limitations are. Details and proofs are often omitted.

The authors develop the perturbative framework for the calculation of hard scattering processes. The text provides both a rigorous development of the formalism of hard scattering of quarks and gluons and an intuitive understanding of the physics.

The theoretical basis and experimental status of perturbative quantum chromodynamics are presented. Relevant field-theoretic methods are introduced at a nonspecialist level, along with a review of the basic ideas and methods of the parton model.

These lectures are directed at a level suitable for graduate students in High Energy Physics. They are intended to give an introduction to the theory and phenomenology of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), focusing on collider physics applications.
