**Handbook of Perturbative QCD**

by George Sterman, at al.

**Publisher**: CTEQ 2001**Number of pages**: 194

**Description**:

The elements, 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. This is followed by an account of the fundamental theorems of quantum chromodynamics, which generalize the parton model.

**arXiv**

These lectures provide an overview of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the SU(3)C gauge theory of the strong interactions. After briefly reviewing the empirical considerations which lead to the introduction of colour, the QCD Lagrangian is discussed.
