**An Introduction to QED and QCD**

by N. J. Evans

2008**Number of pages**: 61

**Description**:

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.
