**Collider Physics within the Standard Model: a Primer**

by Guido Altarelli

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 163

**Description**:

These are graduate lecture notes on Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) and the theory of Electroweak (EW) Interactions, with main focus on Collider Physics. I hope that these lectures can provide an introduction to the subject for the interested reader, assumed to be already familiar with quantum field theory and some basic facts in elementary particle physics as taught in undergraduate courses.
