Number of pages: 52
In these lectures I will discuss the quark-gluon 'corner' ofthe Standard Model, introducing the basics of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of quark-gluon interactions. Throughout this survey, the main emphasis will be put on the relation between QCD and hadrons, the observed bound states of quarks.

This is an introduction to selected topics in the physics of ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions which shed light on the fundamental theory of strong interactions, the Quantum Chromodynamics. The emphasis is on the partonic forms of QCD matter.

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.

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.
