Introduction to Supersymmetry
by Adel Bilal
Publisher: arXiv 2001
Number of pages: 83
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.

Intended for graduate students in particle physics, and researchers in experimental and phenomenological supersymmetry, this is the first textbook to provide a simple introduction to a previously formidably technical field.

These lectures are aimed at finishing undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students. The text gives an introduction to supersymmetry in four spacetime dimensions, and extra dimensions which are combined with the concept of supersymmetry.
