**Elements of QCD for Hadron Colliders**

by Gavin P. Salam

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 56

**Description**:

Quantum Chromodynamics, QCD, is the theory of quarks, gluon s and their interactions. The aim of these lectures is to provide (experimental particle physics Ph.D.) students with an introduction to some of the core concepts and methods of QCD that are relevant in an LHC context.
