Seminarleiter: Dr. Francesco Giacosa
This is a series of introductory lectures on QCD and chiral theories. It is part of the seminar
"Chiral Models in Nuclear and Particle Physics."
The topics are: Groups, QCD Lagrangian and its symmetries (with special attention to dilatation symmetry), large Nc, Multiplets of quarks, effective approaches of QCD and -if there is time- chiral restoration at finite temperature.
Further dates: 8/11/2010, 29/11/2010, 6/12/2010, 10/1/2011, 24/1/2011, 7/2/2011.
