About this Textbook

The book is a self-contained introduction to perturbative and nonperturbative Quantum chromodynamics (QCD) with worked-out exercises for students of theoretical physics. It will be useful as a reference for research scientists as well. Starting with the hadron spectrum, the reader becomes familiar with the representations of SU(N). Relativistic quantum field theory is recapitulated, and scattering theory is discussed in the framework of scalar quantum electrodynamics. Then the gauge theory of quarks and gluons is introduced. In the more advanced chapters, perturbative and nonperturbative techniques in state-of-the-art QCD are discussed in great detail.
The new third edition has been extensively revised and enlarged to cover all new aspects in Quantum chromodynamics.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is the second edition of the very successful book on quantum chromodynamics (QCD), which is part of an extensive series of textbooks by Greiner and co-authors. … The second edition is clearly an advance on the first and continues to be a very useful advanced textbook." (C.A Hurst, Mathematical Reviews, 2003 k)

"This book is a thorough introduction to the perturbative and nonperturbative Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) for advanced level graduate students in theoretical physics and scientists in high energy physics. It contains many worked-out exercises … . In conclusion, this book constitutes an excellent theoretical reference book, reflecting very well the present situation and problems in the field … ." (Laurent Favart, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (4), 2003)

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The book is well structured and delivers a self-contained introduction to quantum chromodynamics (QCD), while supplying the reader with ample information and references on how to enlarge his or her knowledge on specific topics. … Overall, the book exhibits all the hallmarks that make this series of textbooks so valuable to students and scientists … . The step-by-step exercises supply the reader with a most helpful tool to understand how to approach and devise a solution of a given problem in QCD." (Serban Misicu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1147, 2008)
