Numerical simulation of lattice-regulated QCD has become an
important source of information about strong interactions. In the
last few years there has been an explosion of techniques for
performing ever more accurate studies on the properties of strongly
interacting particles. Lattice predictions directly impact many
areas of particle and nuclear physics theory and phenomenology.This
book provides a thorough introduction to the specialized techniques
needed to carry out numerical simulations of QCD: a description of
lattice discretizations of fermions and gauge fields, methods for
actually doing a simulation, descriptions of common strategies to
connect simulation results to predictions of physical quantities,
and a discussion of uncertainties in lattice simulations. More
importantly, while lattice QCD is a well-defined field in its own
right, it has many connections to continuum field theory and
elementary particle physics phenomenology, which are carefully
elucidated in this book. /remove -->
