Testing QCD in Hadronic Processes

  • P. V. Landshoff
Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 20)


The widespread belief among particle physicists that QCD is the correct theory of the strong interactions is supported by a wide range of tests. Because of calculational difficulties, these tests are qualitative rather than quantitative, but they are impressive for their variety1. For both experimental and theoretical reasons, most of them concern processes that involve leptons in either the initial or the final state, but my brief at this School is to discuss purely hadronic reactions.
