18.396 Supersymmetric Quantum Field Theories


Class Info

Topics selected from the following: SUSY algebras and their particle representations; Weyl and Majorana spinors; Lagrangians of basic four-dimensional SUSY theories, both rigid SUSY and supergravity; supermultiplets of fields and superspace methods; renormalization properties, and the non-renormalization theorem; spontaneous breakdown of SUSY; and phenomenological SUSY theories. Some prior knowledge of Noether's theorem, derivation and use of Feynman rules, l-loop renormalization, and gauge theories is essential.

This class has no prerequisites.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 2-131.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
