Summary

I discuss methods based on the large Nc expansion to study nonperturbative aspects of quantum chromodynamics, the theory of the strong force. I apply these methods to the analysis of weak decay processes and the nonperturbative computation of the weak matrix elements needed for a complete evaluation of these decays in the Standard Model of elementary particle physics.
