**Lectures on Supersymmetry Breaking**

by

**Kenneth Intriligator, Nathan Seiberg**-

**arXiv**

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.
