Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 52

Description:
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.

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.

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.

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.
