The present introduction is elementary and pragmatic. The author discusses: spinors and the Poincar'e group, the susy algebra and susy multiplets, superfields and susy lagrangians, susy gauge theories, spontaneously broken susy, and more.

These notes are based on a number of graduate lectures. The aim is to provide a concise introduction to supersymmetry including some classic material such as the Coleman-Mandula theorem, supersymmetry algebra and non-renormalisation theorems.

These notes 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...

Supersymmetry is the supreme symmetry: It unifies spacetime symmetries with internal symmetries, fermions with bosons, and (local supersymmetry) gravity with matter. Under quite general assumptions it is the largest possible symmetry of the S-matrix.
