**Introduction to QCD**

by Peter Skands

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**Number of pages**: 71

**Description**:

These lectures were given at TASI 2012 and 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. The aim is to bring the reader to a level where informed decisions can be made concerning different approaches and their uncertainties.

**Quantum Chromodynamics and Statistical Physics**

by

**Stephane Munier**-

**arXiv**

In these lectures, we first introduce the basic concepts in the context of simple toy models, we study the properties of the latter, and show how the results obtained for the simple models may be taken over to quantum chromodynamics.
