About this Textbook

Since QCD is an ever growing area of physics, a number of sections in this third edition of the book have been expanded, in particular, those dealing with deep inelastic scattering. Here new material is included both on higher-order calculations, quite a number of which have become available in the last few years, and on the small-x limit of structure functions, where, triggered by the results of HERA, there has been considerable activity. Two other topics have also received special attention. One is the matter of bound states of heavy quarks, where inclusion of higher-order perturbative and nonperturbative corrections has led to a clarification of the QCD description, particularly for the lowest states of heavy quarkonia. The other concerns the results of high-order (four-loop) calculations and a new determination of the parameters of the theory, quark masses, etc.

Reviews

From the reviews
"The work under review is a practical-minded book which will be useful for phenomenologists, experimentalists, and also students, because of its wealth of detail. The approach is pedagogical, the steps of the calculations are shown and the bibliography and the index are competently made." (P. Mitra, Mathematical Reviews, 2000g)

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"The Springer publications are doing a yeoman service to the researchers in theoretical physics including high energy physics for the past several decades. The book under review is an outstanding contribution by a well-known theorist concerning the interactions between the quarks and gluons explaining in detail the various important features of this modern field. … Latest theories and additional materials should be of immediate value to research workers in this fast growing advanced field." (Paninjukunnath Achuthan, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1119 (21), 2007)

"This book presents a comprehensive overview of the current state of (perturbative investigations of) the interactions of quarks and gluons. … In general the book is very well written and instructive … . a reference book for researchers actively working in quantum chromodynamics. … it seems to be best suited for graduate students and researchers working in one of the fields presented, or a neighboring field such as electroweak theory, who wish to get acquainted with quantum chromodynamics in more detail and more extensively." (Axel Maas, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 f)
