Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Supersymmetry is a symmetry that relates bosons and fermions, that is widely used in modern theoretical physics. It appears for instance in string theory or as a paradigm to construct particle physics theories beyond the Standard Model. The aim of this course is to introduce the mathematical structures that underlie supersymmetric theories as well as simple supersymmetric field theories in four dimensions.

A tentative outline of the course is:

1) Supersymmetric Quantum Mechanics
2) Representations of the Lorentz group and spinors
3) Four-dimensional superalgebras and their representations
4) The free Wess-Zumino model
5) Superspace and superfields
6) The Wess-Zumino model in superspace
7) Supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory
8) Spontaneous supersymmetry breaking
9) Outlook
