Jet physics, in particular at a hadron collider such as the LHC, cannot be understood without being thoroughly familiar with the theory of the strong interaction: quantum chromodynamics or short QCD. The material presented in this chapter is intended to provide the required proficiency to comprehend experimental and phenomenological publications on the subject of jet physics, some of which will be discussed in detail in the later chapters of this book.
