The book is a selfcontained introduction to perturbative and nonperturbative quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) with workedout exercises for students of theoretical physics. It will be useful as a reference for research scientists as well. Starting with the hadron spectrum, the reader becomes familiar with the representations of SU(N). Relativistic quantum field theory is recapitulated, and scattering theory is discussed in the framework of scalar quantum electrodynamics. Then the gauge theory of quarks and gluons is introduced. In the more advanced chapters, perturbative and nonperturbative techniques in stateoftheart QCD are discussed in great detail. This completely revised and enlarged second edition will fill the gap in the literature.
