**QCD in Heavy Ion Collisions**

by

**Edmond Iancu**-

**arXiv.org**,

**2012**

This is an introduction to selected topics in the physics of ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions which shed light on the fundamental theory of strong interactions, the Quantum Chromodynamics. The emphasis is on the partonic forms of QCD matter.

**Hadronic Atoms in QCD + QED**

by

**J. Gasser, V.E. Lyubovitskij, A. Rusetsky**-

**arXiv.org**,

**2009**

We review the theory of hadronic atoms in QCD + QED based on a non-relativistic effective Lagrangian framework. We provide an introduction to the theory and describe several applications: meson-meson, meson-nucleon atoms and meson-deuteron compounds.

**Quantum Chromodynamics and Hadrons: an Elementary Introduction**

by

**Alexander Khodjamirian**-

**arXiv.org**,

**2003**

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.

**Quantum Chromodynamics and Statistical Physics**

by

**Stephane Munier**-

**arXiv**,

**2014**

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.

**Lattice QCD: concepts, techniques and some results**

by

**Christian Hoelbling**-

**arXiv**,

**2014**

The aim of this introduction to lattice QCD is to provide people working in related areas with a rough overview of lattice techniques, what they are able to provide today and what their limitations are. Details and proofs are often omitted.

**Introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory**

by

**Thomas Becher, Alessandro Broggio, Andrea Ferroglia**-

**arXiv**,

**2014**

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 ...

**Elements of QCD for Hadron Colliders**

by

**Gavin P. Salam**-

**arXiv**,

**2010**

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

**Introduction to QCD**

by

**Peter Skands**-

**arXiv**,

**2012**

These lectures are directed at a level suitable for graduate students in High Energy Physics. They are intended to give an introduction to the theory and phenomenology of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), focusing on collider physics applications.

**The Condensed Matter Physics of QCD**

by

**Krishna Rajagopal, Frank Wilczek**-

**arXiv**,

**2000**

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.

**Handbook of Perturbative QCD**

by

**George Sterman, at al.**-

**CTEQ**,

**2001**

The 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.

**Quantum Chromodynamics**

by

**A. Pich**-

**arXiv**,

**1995**

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.

**Quantum Chromodynamics**

by

**Gerhard Ecker**-

**arXiv**,

**2006**

After a historical review of the emergence of QCD, the basic notions of colour and gauge invariance are introduced. The second lecture is devoted to perturbative QCD. The final two lectures treat various aspects of QCD beyond perturbation theory.
