This broad introduction to lattice gauge field theories, in particular quantum chromodynamics, serves as a textbook for advanced graduate students, and also provides the reader with the necessary analytical and numerical techniques to carry out research. Although the analytic calculations can be demanding, they are discussed in sufficient detail that the reader can fill in the missing steps. The book also introduces problems currently under investigation and emphasizes numerical results from pioneering work.
