(More detailed notes on web). We will adopt some notation, following the text by Wess and Bagger: ψ = (χαφ∗ ˙α). Correspondingly, we label the indices on the. SUPERSYMMETRY AND SUPERGRAVITY. J. Wess. Universitвt Karlsruhe. Institut fur .. J. Wess and J. Bagger, Supersymmetry and Super- gravity, Princeton. Julius Erich Wess (December 5, – August 8, ) was an Austrian theoretical physicist Wess, Julius and Bagger, Jonathan (December ).

Here are some of the standard books that can be consulted when learning SUSY. Dynamics and duality Oxford University Press.
Trivedi, Dynamical supersymmetry breaking Ann.
West, Introduction to supersymmetry and supergravity World Scientific, S. The reviews below are ordered roughly by the same order in which the topics are presented in the bahger. I divided the lectures into two main blocks: Weinbger, The Quantum Theory of Fields.
Wess and Bagger has become the trendsetter when it comes to notation, so if you have to brush baggef on the superspace formalism you better do it there. Super QCD for various numbers of flavors and colors. Lastly, here are links to some nice online lecture notes that I consulted when preparing the lectures.
For instance you will soon find out that the names of Seiberg and Witten recur quite often Discuss the material and the problems amongst your colleagues and with me as much as you can! Reality check followed by an Introduction. This is a list of reviews that discuss the material closest to the one covered in these lectures.
Shifman, Nonperturbative dynamics in supersymmetric gauge theories Prog. Heise, An Introduction to supersymmetric gauge theories and matrix models Int. Supersymmetry Cambridge University Press, J. Examples of stable and metastable dynamical SUSY breaking in four dimensions.
I will also prepare some problems to help you delve more deeply into the material. I do not give directly references to the original work, but instead list some of the most relevant reviews from which the original work can be easily found.
We will adjust bagged as we go along but generally I prefer to cover less material than rush through to get to the end. Quantum corrections, what do they mean? We then move on to the core material.
The plan is probably overly optimistic! Seiberg, Lectures on supersymmetric gauge theories and electric-magnetic duality Nucl.
LACES – Lectures
Seiberg, Lectures on Supersymmetry Breaking Class. Classical moduli space of vacua, with examples. The baggeg and the Goldstino. More details are given in the plan on the next page.
