QCD and weak interactions of light quarks

Author

Summary, in English

This review contains an overview of strong interaction effects in weak decays starting with a historical introduction. It contains a short overview of semileptonic decays and their relevance for measuring CKM matrix elements. The main part is devoted to the theoretical calculation on nonleptonic matrix elements relevant for K<sup>0</sup>-K<sup>0</sup>bar mixing and K to pi pi decays. It concludes with a short summary of rare kaon decays.
