Book cover: Quantum Chromodynamics and Hadrons: an Elementary IntroductionQuantum Chromodynamics and Hadrons: an Elementary Introduction
by - arXiv.org ,
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.

Book cover: Quantum Chromodynamics and Statistical PhysicsQuantum Chromodynamics and Statistical Physics
by - arXiv ,
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.

Book cover: Introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective TheoryIntroduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory
by - arXiv ,
These lectures provide an introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory. After discussing the expansion of Feynman diagrams around the high-energy limit, the effective Lagrangian is constructed, first for a scalar theory, then for QCD ...

Book cover: The Condensed Matter Physics of QCDThe Condensed Matter Physics of QCD
by - arXiv ,
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.
