Guide to the references and resource listingsThe following bibliography is as comprehensive a guide as I can make it, but is almost certainly not exhaustive. Suggestions for improvement or missing information always welcome. The organisational structure is as follows:
- Material is first divided into five types:
- introductory and pedagogical resources (textbooks and review papers);
- automated perturbation theory routines;
- results presented in journal and arXiv articles;
- slides and talks available online;
- theses available online.
Results are further organised according to:
- "standard lattice perturbation theory for QCD", organised according to action type:
- quenched or pure gauge theory results;
- fermionic results;
- other methods for extracting peturbative results and applications beyond QCD:
- high-β results;
- stochastic perturbation theory results;
- results from beyond QCD at zero temperature.
Fermionic results are then split according to the fermionic action
- Wilson-like (e.g. clover);
- Relativistic heavy quarks;
- Multi-loop calculations are indicated within each action type heading.
- Where there are a large number of references in a given section, the lists are further divided by decade (or even by five year intervals). Not all sections are divided in this way. The decision of whether or not the references should be further subdivided by decade is a matter of personal preference. This choice is arbitrary and does not reflect anything of fundamental import.
Early lattice work was often perturbative or included lattice perturbation theory, owing to the lack of computational resources and the young state of the field. Coverage of the earliest work is currently somewhat limited, but will improve with age.
