**Informal Lectures on Lattice Gauge Theory**

by Guy D. Moore

**Publisher**: McGill University 2003**Number of pages**: 50

**Description**:

The object is to introduce the ideas behind lattice gauge theory, with an intended audience of quantum field theorists with no lattice experience. I concentrate on field theory aspects which are elucidated by lattice gauge theory; ideas of effective field theory, the geometrical meaning of gauge invariance, attempts to rigorously define confinement, instantons and topology, and a concrete example of what complications arise when one tries to regulate chiral theories.
