Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 80

Description:
These notes are intended to 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 with emphasis upon the charges that generate the transformations of supersymmetry. Abelian and non-abelian supersymmetric gauge theories are characterized in their simpler and more general forms.
