Abstract

We review the role of the effective field theories in modern physics, especially modern elementary particle physics. We provide field-theoretical description of the three effective field theories: chiral perturbation theory, heavy-quark effective theory and Randall-Sundrum (RS) Model. Applications of these formalisms in the particle physics research are discussed, ranging from B-physics and baryon physics to search for the first RS Kaluza-Klein graviton mode via gluon-fusion process at the LHC.
