Summary

"This book consists of a series of lectures to cover every facet of the modern version of lattice QCD. All the lectures are self-contained starting with the necessary background material and ending up with the latest development. Most of the lectures are given by pioneers in the field. This book may be useful as an advanced textbook for graduate students in particle physics and its modern and fascinating contents will inspire the interest of the non-experts."
