3 | Standard Model Review: Read section 1.1 of Manohar, and/or chapter 2 of Georgi; Also read 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 of Manohar |

4 | Look at the paper handed out in class: Buchmuller, W., and D. Wyler. "dim-6 Operators." Nuclear Physics B268 (1986): 621.Also, the C. Arzt paper discussed in class, hep-ph/9304230: Arzt, C. "Reduced Effective Lagrangians." Physics Letters B342 (1995): 189. |

5 | Read 1.5 of Manohar. On assignment 2 there is a problem on renormalons. For reading on this subject see Section 4.6 of Manohar and also hep-ph/9807443: Beneke, M. "Renormalons." Physics Reports 317 (1999): 1. |

7 | Read 1.6 of Manohar. For a more detailed discussion of this material see hep-ph/9512380 (sections III C, D, E, F): Buchalla, Gerhard, Andrzej J. Buras, and Markus E. Lautenbacher.

13-14 | Reading for this week is chapter 3 and chapter 4 of Manohar. |

15 | Reading on the OPE can be found in chapter 6 of Manohar. For further reading on quark-hadron duality look at the classic paper: Poggio, Quinn, and Weinberg.
