Cambridge Lectures on Supersymmetry and Extra Dimensions
by S. Krippendorf, F. Quevedo, O. Schlotterer
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 130
These lectures on supersymmetry and extra dimensions are aimed at finishing undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students with a background in quantum field theory and group theory. The text gives an introduction to supersymmetry in four spacetime dimensions, and extra spacetime dimensions which are combined with the concept of supersymmetry.

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.

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...

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.
