Chromodynamics and Deep Inelastic Processes

  • G. Altarelli
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 49)


The present three lectures are devoted to a summary on the phenomenological predictions of Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (Ref. 1) (QCD) for deep inealstic processes and their comparison with the data.
