Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 166

Description:
These lectures provide an introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory. After discussing the expansion of Feynman diagrams around the high-energy limit, the effective Lagrangian is constructed, first for a scalar theory, then for QCD. The underlying concepts are illustrated with the Sudakov form factor...

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.
