Collider Physics · Five Lectures
Jun 5-9, 2006
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.
1: QCD, asymptotic freedom and infrared safety ·
The lectures will be substantially based on the book
QCD and Collider Physics
by R.K. Ellis, W.J. Stirling and B.R. Webber.
2: Parton branching and proton structure ·
3: Shower Monte Carlo ·
4: W and Z production at NLO ·
5: Heavy quark production and decay ·
