**Quantum Chromodynamics and Statistical Physics**

by Stephane Munier

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 58

**Description**:

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.
