Introduction to more advanced topics

This book has covered many of the primary topics in perturbative QCD, with a focus on certain inclusive processes for which particularly systematic treatments are available. It should provide the reader with a sound conceptual framework for further study and research. However, hadronic interactions form a vast subject, and there is an enormous literature where perturbatively based methods have been applied.

This chapter gives a summary of a selection of important areas of further application of perturbative QCD.

One common theme, a prerequisite for actual perturbative calculations, is that the reactions have in some sense a controlling hard subprocess, occurring on a short distance scale, i.e., a distance ...
