The following lectures, pedagogical in nature, introduce and illustrate with simple examples, some techniques and ideas which are useful in the phenomenological analysis of meson decay. Generally the form factors (or vertex functions) which contain most of the dynamics will be little discussed; the emphasis will be on kinematical aspects.
