Number of pages: 221
In this review we explain the main methods and techniques of lattice perturbation theory, focusing on the cases of Wilson and Ginsparg-Wilson fermions. We will illustrate, among other topics, the peculiarities of perturbative techniques on the lattice, the use of computer codes for the analytic calculations and the computation of lattice integrals. Discussed are also methods for the computation of 1-loop integrals with very high precision.

We first present a pedagogical account of relativistic cosmology and primordial nucleosynthesis, discussing both theoretical and observational aspects, and then examine such constraints in detail, in particular those pertaining to new particles.

Structure functions are a measure of the partonic structure of hadrons. This is an overview on present structure function and related data, and on the techniques used to extract parton distribution functions to describe the structure of the proton.
