Number of pages: 140
We review the theory of hadronic atoms in QCD + QED, based on a non-relativistic effective Lagrangian framework. We first provide an introduction to the theory, and then describe several applications: meson-meson, meson-nucleon atoms and meson-deuteron compounds. Finally, we compare the quantum field theory framework used here with the traditional approach, which is based on quantum-mechanical potential scattering.

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.

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.

These lectures are directed at a level suitable for graduate students in High Energy Physics. They are intended to give an introduction to the theory and phenomenology of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), focusing on collider physics applications.

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.
