**Quantum Chromodynamics**

by A. Pich

**Publisher**: arXiv 1995**Number of pages**: 51

**Description**:

These lectures provide an overview of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the SU(3)C gauge theory of the strong interactions. After briefly reviewing the empirical considerations which lead to the introduction of colour, the QCD Lagrangian is discussed. The running of the strong coupling and the associated property of Asymptotic Freedom are analyzed.
