Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 80

Description:
These notes are intended to provide an introduction to supersymmetry. They begin with supersymmetric quantum mechanics and the basic properties of spinor fields. The supersymmetry of simple theories of spin-zero and spin-one-half fields is discussed with emphasis upon the charges that generate the transformations of supersymmetry. Abelian and non-abelian supersymmetric gauge theories are characterized in their simpler and more general forms.

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.

Supersymmetry has been a very fruitful subject of research and has taught us a great deal about mathematics and quantum field theory. Hopefully this course will convince the student that supersymmetry is a beautiful and interesting subject.
