Basics of QCD perturbation theory
Abstract
This is an introduction to the use of QCD perturbation theory, emphasizing generic features of the theory that enable one to separate shorttime and longtime effects. The author also covers some important classes of applications: electronpositron annihilation to hadrons, deeply inelastic scattering, and hard processes in hadronhadron collisions. 31 refs., 38 figs.

The use of perturbation theory in densityfunctional theory
Perturbation theory with respect to the electronelectron interaction leads to expressions for the exchange and correlation energies and potentials in terms of KohnSham orbitals and KohnSham eigenvalues. An exact {open_quote}exchangeonly{close_quote} procedure for solids is introduced. Results for several semiconductors are presented. Perturbation theory expansions for the hardness of molecules and the bad gap of solids are given. Densityfunctional exchange and correlation energies for excited states are defined and a perturbation theory based KohnSham formalism to treat excited states within densityfunctional theory is introduced. 
Adaptive Perturbation Theory: Quantum Mechanics and Field Theory
Adaptive perturbation is a new method for perturbatively computing the eigenvalues and eigenstates of quantum mechanical Hamiltonians that are widely believed not to be solvable by such methods. The novel feature of adaptive perturbation theory is that it decomposes a given Hamiltonian, H, into an unperturbed part and a perturbation in a way which extracts the leading nonperturbative behavior of the problem exactly. In this talk I will introduce the method in the context of the pure anharmonic oscillator and then apply it to the case of tunneling between symmetric minima. After that, I will show how this method canmore » 
The basics and not so basics of water corrosion processes altered by flow changes
Corrosion and electrochemical material wastage processes take on many different forms. Most of these forms are dramatically affected by the relative flow rates of the reactants in the corroding cell. Some forms of corrosion are termed flowassisted, flowaccelerated, erosioncorrosion, etc. Old processes, aging infrastructure issues, and an influx of study dollars has brought these corrosion processes to the forefront of the modern world. This manuscript discusses the basics of the flow effects in systems which corrode by water.
