Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 191)


The predictions of perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics for hard hadronic final states in photon-photon collisions are reviewed. Particular attention is paid to perturbative corrections to inclusive jet and single hadron cross sections and to the predictions for wide angle exclusive final states.
