 Course 1  






Introduction to QCD at Colliders
Keith Ellis (Fermilab)
October 12, 17, 19, 24

An introduction will be given to the applications of QCD at high energy colliders, namely parton distributions, shower Monte-Carlo programs, and the hadroproduction of Vector bosons and Heavy Quarks. 

The lectures will be substantially based on the book QCD and Collider Physics by R.K. Ellis, W.J. Stirling and B.R. Webber.

October 12  QCD, asymptotic freedom and infrared safety    
October 17  Parton branching and proton structure   
October 19  Shower Monte Carlo   
October 24  The production of W,Z and Heavy Quarks at colliders
