Elements of Supersymmetry
by Kevin Cahill
Publisher: arXiv 2001
Number of pages: 80
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.

These lectures are aimed at finishing undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students. The text gives an introduction to supersymmetry in four spacetime dimensions, and extra dimensions which are combined with the concept of supersymmetry.

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.

Intended for graduate students in particle physics, and researchers in experimental and phenomenological supersymmetry, this is the first textbook to provide a simple introduction to a previously formidably technical field.

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.
