Higher Order QCD Corrections in e+e Annihilation into Hadrons

Quantum chromodynamics (QCD) has permeated almost all fields of strong interaction physics and needs no further introduction. Experimentally, there are various qualitative and even semi-quantitative pieces of evidence in favour of QCD. But so far there is no convincing proof of its validity. Though it has no real competition, I feel it is extremely important to think out tests which emphasize the more fundamental and discriminative aspects of QCD as, e.g., its nonabelian gauge structure. Such tests are rare and not easy to perform as we shall see.
