QCD Sum Rules, a Modern Perspective
Abstract
An introduction to the method of QCD sum rules is given for those who want to learn how to use this method. Furthermore, we discuss various applications of sum rules, from the determination of quark masses to the calculation of hadronic form factors and structure functions. Finally, we explain the idea of the lightcone sum rules and outline the recent development of this approach.
