The aim of this chapter is to provide a pedagogical introduction to the application of Chiral Perturbation Theory to Lattice QCD. Topics covered include a general introduction to Chiral Perturbation Theory, the inclusion of scaling violations in chiral perturbation theory, partial quenching and mixed actions, chiral perturbation theory with heavy kaons, and the effects of finite volume, both in the p- and epsilon-regimes.

Keywords: Chiral perturbation theory; scaling violations; partial quenching; mixed actions; heavy kaons; finite volume; epsilon regime
