Description:
Quantum Chromodynamics, QCD, is the theory of quarks, gluon s and their interactions. The aim of these lectures is to provide (experimental particle physics Ph.D.) students with an introduction to some of the core concepts and methods of QCD that are relevant in an LHC context.

We review the theory of hadronic atoms in QCD + QED based on a non-relativistic effective Lagrangian framework. We provide an introduction to the theory and describe several applications: meson-meson, meson-nucleon atoms and meson-deuteron compounds.

The authors develop the perturbative framework for the calculation of hard scattering processes. The text provides both a rigorous development of the formalism of hard scattering of quarks and gluons and an intuitive understanding of the physics.
