Om Lectures on QED and QCD
The increasing precision of experimental data in many areas of elementary particle physics requires an equally precise theoretical description. In particular, radiative corrections (described by one- and multi-loop Feynman diagrams) have to be considered. Although a growing number of physicists are involved in such projects, multi-loop calculation methods can only be studied from original publications. With its coverage of multi-loop calculations, this book serves as an excellent supplement to the standard textbooks on quantum field theory. Based around postgraduate-level lectures given by the author, the material is suitable for both beginners and graduate students.Contents:QED and QCD:One-Loop DiagramsQED at One LoopQCD at One LoopTwo-Loop Corrections in QED and QCDOn-Shell Renormalization SchemeDecoupling of Heavy-Particle LoopsConclusion: Effective Field TheoriesMultiloop Calculations: Massless Propagator DiagramsHQET Propagator DiagramsMassive On-Shell Propagator DiagramsHypergeometric Functions and Multiple ξ ValuesReadership: Advanced undergraduates and graduate students in theoretical, high energy and particle physics.
