Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Introducing the basic theory and recent advances in QCD, this book reviews the historical development of the subject up to the present day, covering aspects of strong interactions such as the quark and parton models, the notion of colours and the S-matrix approach. The author then discusses QCD and QED as gauge theories, renormalization procedures, QCD hard processes in hadron collisions, hadron jets, and the different non-perturbative aspects of QCD. Special attention is given to the method of QCD spectral sum rules. A valuable reference for graduate students and researchers.
