How To Use Qcd In A Sentence

The interest in collisions of highenergy nuclei as a possible route to a new state of nuclear matter began with the emergence of QCD in the late 1970s.

BRAHMS was designed to measure the momentum of scattered hadrons, part of the study of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), investigating the strong force that holds atomic nuclei together.

But still we do need a cutoff (to be differentiated from the scale at which the theory is defined) to handle UV divergences, for example in perturbative QCD.

QCD tells you explicitly how to evolve these non perturbative functions, but that has to be done with an approximation.
How low is low? « Imaginary Potential

An important proof of the QCD theory is provided by the collisions between electrons and their antiparticles, positrons, with very high kinetic energy, when they annihilate each other.

The goal is to study lots of processes, but most significantly to create really hot, dense conditions where we may be able to observe a phase transition in QCD to something called the quarkgluon plasma.

There is also the axion particle issue, putative small mass particles which “protect” QCD from CP violations.
A Dark, Misleading Force

Strings are similar to mesons, where an open string with its endpoints, or ChanPaton factors, are similar to a QCD gluon flux tube with quarks at the end.

However, I find to stomach arguments that other completely useless things – like calculating the QCD beta function to n loops, or calculating the homotopy groups of spheres is somehow more worthy.
