**Lectures on Supersymmetry Breaking**

by Kenneth Intriligator, Nathan Seiberg

**Publisher**: arXiv 2007**Number of pages**: 47

**Description**:

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. Then we give a brief review of the dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories. Finally, we use this dynamics to present various mechanisms for dynamical supersymmetry breaking.
