These six lecture courses provide the background necessary in the understanding of the application of lattice methods to phenomenology, and give examples of interesting applications. The first three introduce the necessary techniques: chiral perturbation theory, heavy quark effective field theory, and lattice gauge theory. The remaining three describe how these techniques are used, mainly in lattice simulations, in the study of interesting phenomenological questions: vacuum structure, finite temperature QCD, and electroweak matrix elements. What distinguishes this volume from others is its focus on providing the background necessary for us to understand the methods and the significance of lattice gauge theory research.


Chiral perturbation theory, B. Holstein; heavy quarks, N. Isgur; introduction to lattice gauge theory, S. Sharpe; correlation functions in the QCD vacuum, E. Shuryak; finite temperature, A. Ukawa; phenomenology from the lattice, P. Mackenzie.
