Handbook of Perturbative QCD
by George Sterman, at al.
Publisher: CTEQ 2001
Number of pages: 194
The elements, theoretical basis, and experimental status of perturbative quantum chromodynamics are presented. Relevant field-theoretic methods are introduced at a nonspecialist level, along with a review of the basic ideas and methods of the parton model. This is followed by an account of the fundamental theorems of quantum chromodynamics, which generalize the parton model.

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.

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.

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.
