Introduction to Lattice QCD
by Rajan Gupta
Publisher: arXiv 1998
Number of pages: 150
These notes aim to provide a pedagogical introduction to Lattice QCD. The topics covered include the scope of LQCD calculations, lattice discretization of gauge and fermion actions, doubling problem, improved gauge and Dirac actions, confinement and strong coupling expansions, phase transitions in the lattice theory, lattice operators, a general discussion of statistical and systematic errors in simulations of LQCD, the analyses of the hadron spectrum, glueball masses, the strong coupling constant, and the quark masses.

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.

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. The main emphasis will be put on the relation between QCD and hadrons.

The aim of this introduction to lattice QCD is to provide people working in related areas with a rough overview of lattice techniques, what they are able to provide today and what their limitations are. Details and proofs are often omitted.
