**Introduction to Supersymmetry**

by Adel Bilal

**Publisher**: arXiv 2001**Number of pages**: 83

**Description**:

These are expanded notes of lectures given at the summer school "Gif 2000" in Paris. The present introduction is elementary and pragmatic. The author discusses: spinors and the Poincar'e group, the susy algebra and susy multiplets, superfields and susy lagrangians, susy gauge theories, spontaneously broken susy, the non-linear sigma model, N=2 susy gauge theories, and finally Seiberg-Witten duality.

Supersymmetry is the supreme symmetry: It unifies spacetime symmetries with internal symmetries, fermions with bosons, and (local supersymmetry) gravity with matter. Under quite general assumptions it is the largest possible symmetry of the S-matrix.

We review the subject of spontaneous supersymmetry breaking. First we consider supersymmetry breaking in a semiclassical theory. We illustrate it with several examples, demonstrating different phenomena, including metastable supersymmetry breaking.
