Applications of chiral perturbation theory to lattice QCD
by Maarten Golterman
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 83
These notes provide a pedagogical introduction to the subject. Topics covered include a general introduction, the inclusion of scaling violations in chiral perturbation theory, partial quenching and mixed actions, chiral perturbation theory with heavy kaons, and the effects of finite volume, both in the p- and epsilon-regimes.

This work introduces into the Interacting Boson Model, created in 1974 and then extended by numerous papers. Many-body configurations with s- and d-boson states are described and creation- and annihilation-operators for bosons are introduced.
