Supersymmetry in Particle Physics: An Elementary Introduction
by Ian J. R. Aitchison
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2007
Number of pages: 257
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. Its elementary, practical treatment brings readers to the frontier of contemporary research, in particular the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider.

These notes 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...

These notes are based on a number of graduate lectures. The aim is to provide a concise introduction to supersymmetry including some classic material such as the Coleman-Mandula theorem, supersymmetry algebra and non-renormalisation theorems.

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, and more.
