Elements of QCD for Hadron CollidersElements of QCD for Hadron Colliders
by Gavin P. Salam - arXiv , 2010
Quantum Chromodynamics, QCD, is the theory of quarks, gluon s and their interactions. The aim of these lectures is to provide students with an introduction to some of the core concepts and methods of QCD that are relevant in an LHC context.

Introduction to QCDIntroduction to QCD
by Peter Skands - arXiv , 2012
These lectures 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 Condensed Matter Physics of QCDThe Condensed Matter Physics of QCD
by Krishna Rajagopal, Frank Wilczek - arXiv , 2000
Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently. We discuss the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and density, and close with a look at possible astrophysical signatures.

Handbook of Perturbative QCDHandbook of Perturbative QCD
by George Sterman, at al. - CTEQ , 2001
The 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.

Quantum ChromodynamicsQuantum Chromodynamics
by A. Pich - arXiv , 1995
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.

Quantum ChromodynamicsQuantum Chromodynamics
by Gerhard Ecker - arXiv , 2006
After a historical review of the emergence of QCD, the basic notions of colour and gauge invariance are introduced. The second lecture is devoted to perturbative QCD. The final two lectures treat various aspects of QCD beyond perturbation theory.

An Introduction to QED and QCDAn Introduction to QED and QCD
by N. J. Evans , 2008
The aim of this course is to teach you how to calculate transition amplitudes, cross sections and decay rates, for elementary particles in the highly successful theories of Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) and Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD).

Introduction to Lattice QCDIntroduction to Lattice QCD
by Rajan Gupta - arXiv , 1998
These notes aim to provide a pedagogical introduction to Lattice QCD. The topics covered include the scope of LQCD calculations, lattice discretization of gauge and fermion actions, doubling problem, improved gauge and Dirac actions, etc.

Hadron Models and related New Energy issuesHadron Models and related New Energy issues
by F. Smarandache, V. Christianto - InfoLearnQuest , 2007
The book covers a wide-range of issues from alternative hadron models to their likely implications to New Energy research, including alternative interpretation of coldfusion phenomena. The authors explored some new approaches to particle physics.

Hard Interactions of Quarks and Gluons: a Primer for LHC PhysicsHard Interactions of Quarks and Gluons: a Primer for LHC Physics
by J.M. Campbell, J.W. Huston, W.J. Stirling - arXiv , 2006
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.
