Quantum Chromodynamics




Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the discussions in the preceding chapters. Starting from its historical development, the lagrangian of QCD is introduced and its phenomenological consequences worked out in detail in the framework of perturbative QCD. Experiments on various high-energy reactions are discussed which determine the structure of QCD and its free parameters. Perturbative QCD is treated on the level of fixed order matrix element calculations, including renormalization, the leading-log approximation, and QCD-inspired heuristic and numerical Monte Carlo models.

Keywords:   perturbative QCD, higher order calculations, leading-log QCD
