Description

1. Hadron interactions. A few reminders (kinematics, etc.). Proton-proton scattering. Hard scattering.
2. QCD and parton densities. Lepton-proton scattering. Scaling violation.
3. Monte Carlo generators. Parton showers: fragmentation and hadronization.
4. Luminosity and cross-section measurements. Ingredients for cross-section measurement. Luminosity.
5. QCD and jet physics. Higher orders. Jet algorithms. Jet energy scale. Jet cross-section measurements.
