 Lecture 2: hard cross sections, resummation, parton showers and jets
 Code for an illustrative, ultrasimplified, toy parton shower.
 Lectures on "Basics of QCD" at the ICTP–SAIFR school on QCD and LHC physics, July 2015, Sao Paulo, Brazil:
 Lectures on jets at
the Center for Future High
Energy Physics
(IHEP) and Peking University Beijing, April 2014:

at the TASI
2013 school in Boulder, Colorado, June 2013.

2 lectures, as part of a series of 4 given together with Matteo
Cacciari on jets during the Focus Week at the GGI Workshop on
High
energy QCD after the start of the LHC,
Florence, Italy, September 2011.

2 lectures on jets at
the 2011
IPMUYITP School and Workshop on Monte Carlo Tools for LHC,
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University,

3 CERN
academic training lectures on jets, March 2011:
 Lecture
1: introduction, followed by an outline of some of the main
sequential recombination jet algorithms
 Lecture 2:
comparing theory and experiment (including illustration of
conealgorithm issues); the relation between a
parton and a jet; jet shapes; and the example of top reconstruction
 Lecture 3:
optimising the use of jets in a simple case (dijet
reconstruction); and the study of fat jets, i.e. boosted
hadronicallydecaying massive objects.
 4 introductory lectures on QCD,
given at
the 2010
Maria Laach autumn highenergyphysics school, Germany,
September 2010. This is an abridged version of the Bautzen lectures
given below.
 Lecture
1: Introduction (Lagrangian, perturbative and nonperturbative methods, betafunction,
soft and collinear divergences)
 Lecture
2: The concepts of parton showers and jets
 Lecture
3: Parton Distribution Functions
 Lecture
4: QCD as it's relevant at the LHC
 Jet Physics at the Cargèse: Physics at TeV
colliders school, July 2010.
 Jet Physics at
the Aspects
of perturbative Quantum chromodynamics BielefeldParisHelsinki
school, Orsay, France, March 2010.
 4 introductory lectures on QCD, for experimental PhD students,
given at
the 2009 European
School of High Energy Physics, in Bautzen, Germany, June 2009:
 Lecture
1: Basics (Lagrangian, perturbative and nonperturbative methods, betafunction,
soft and collinear divergences).
 Lecture
2: Parton Distribution Functions.
 Lecture 3: A brief overview of fixed order calculations, parton showers.
 Lecture 4: Merging fixedorder and partonshower
calculations; jets.
 Two
lectures on jets at
the 2008 CTEQMCnet Summer
School on QCD Phenomenology and Monte Carlo Event Generators,
Debrecen, Hungary, August 2008.
These lectures provide an introduction to sequential
recombination and conetype jet algorithms, including concrete
illustrations of the differences between various cone
algorithms. They also discuss questions related to infrared and
collinear safety, and look at issues and difficulties that arise
when trying determine which jet definitions are "best".
 Transparencies
and
some simple
exercises for a course on the theory of jets at the École de de Gif 2007.
 Two seminars in a series
accompanying the course by
Gabriele Veneziano on perturbative QCD at the Collège de
France (Paris, France, 2005)
 Phenomenology (Course given at BUSSTEPP 2004,
Plymouth, UK, August 2004, and BUSSTEPP 2005, Ambleside, UK, August 2005)
The course consists of 4 lectures:  Lecture
1: quick recall of the standard model and an introduction to
indirect bounds on the Higgs mass
 Lecture
2: the search for the Higgs boson
 Lecture
3: introduction to QCD and to soft radiation
 Lecture
4: QCD for processes with incoming protons
 Lecture
4 (from 2004): QCD jets and principles of "allorder"
calculations
