For a slightly more formal approach, Weinberg vol 3 chapter 28 is very good. The for the traditional approaches, I suggest Baer and Tata chapter 11, Dress et al.
Intriligator and Seiberg have also put together a nice review based on recent lectures on dynamical and metastable SUSY breaking. On the more formal side, one can look at SUSY-breaking in stringy models, BPS states, supergravity and a bunch of other things that are outside of my current domain of familiarity. The books treat many topics rather briefly leaving most calculations to the reader , but are able to tie them all together so that you can pick up a lot of physical intuition along the way.
Supergravity: Wess and Bagger seems to be the main choice here. Weinberg vol 3 chapter 31 also includes a treatment of gravity within supersymmetry. Most of the other modern texts mention something about supergravity, though not necessarily giving the detail one would wish for a dedicated study. I think the current state of the literature is that a lot of the tedious calculations are left to the reader to flesh out. I should note that Bailin and Love have quite a bit on supergravity… but I never got that far in the text, perhaps because they supergravity chapter sits right where I would expect a chapter on the MSSM.
Since its first edition, this continuously-updated paper has gotten a lot bigger. However, this remains one of the most recommended pieces of introductory literature on the subject. This is probably the standard textbook to pick up at a bookstore. Wess and Bagger, Supersymmetry and Supergravity. This is another of the classics.
It has short, terse chapters which with a lot of detail left to the reader. On the other hand, it does manage to squeeze in some very subtle insight on how to approach supersymmetry. This would probably be my recommendation for a very first book on SUSY. The text itself appears to be based on a set of lecture notes which are available on the arXiv PDG.
The pocket-version is like a booklet of flashcards for current experimental constraints. For those playing with their first models, the PDG is a great place to go when looking to constrain your parameter space. Since I keep harping on about the Web 2. These fantastic lectures were calibrated to resonate with first year theoretical physics students who had just finished a one-semester QFT course.
Unfortunately, at the time of this writing only a couple of lectures have been posted online.
For a semiclassical black hole, therefore, the information-loss problem does not arise. The question of singularity avoidance is closely connected with the role of boundary conditions in quantum cosmology. One of the Introduction to Executive Protection cookies in M, are you consist which one? Kallosh and A. Nilles, Supersymmetry, Supergravity and Particle Physics.
Keep an eye out, however, since these will probably be the first complete 24 lectures supersymmetry course provided online via streaming video. For shorter video courses on SUSY, check the usual physics video resources , especially those at Fermilab, CERN, and the SLAC summer institiute Here are some review articles which are shorter than any of the texts above, but that may be helpful for particular topics.
Murayama, Supersymmetry Phenomenology. This is a relatively light review, but I especially like the approach to motivating supersymmetry. Instead of looking at loop diagrams, Prof. Murayama appeals to another UV problem, the singularity in the Coulomb potential which is solved by introducing antiparticles.
Lykken, Introduction to Supersymmetry.
Odd-numbered years are phenomenological. I would think that the second half of these lectures would be helpful for a beginner who wants to get a taste of what lies beyond the basics.
Argyres, Lectures on Supersymmetry. There are actually two pairs of SUSY lectures here. Also on Prof. You can just skip the phenomenological bits, apparently. Haber, Introduction to Low Energy Supersymmetry. Haber has a well-earned reputation for thoroughness and insight. Drees, Introduction to Supersymmetry. Peskin, Supersymmetry in Elementary Particle Physics.
This is the newest item on this list, just posted on the arXiv two months ago. If you want, you can go ahead and glue these lectures to the end of your copy of Peskin and Schroeder. Ryder, Quantum Field Theory Chapter See Prof. By the way, I might as well mention it now: you should know a thing or two about linear algebra, such as singular value decomposition and Takagi factorisation.
Otherwise you might be confused about the way some of the matrices are diagonalised. Denner et al. I found the second one more useful. As extra credit you can work out the RG running.
Seriously: these are exercises that give you a feel for the MSSM. Presumably you did the same thing for the Standard Model at some point in your academic life. Now in its third edition, this book has very readable bite-sized sections on all sorts of neat topics.
Introductory material on supersymmetry is a bit thin, but in its place there are lots of nice treatments of CP violation, unification, technicolour, supergravity. Binetruy, Supersymmetry: Theory, Experiment, and Cosmology. The little white dots on the cover are supposed to represent stars, I think. The preface offers a few suggested reading programmes with various detours into the [very nice and thorough] appendices. When I first did a self-study in supersymmetry, I found this nonlinearity a bit difficult since it was hard to motivate what was going on from one chapter to the next.
However, as a reference for more advanced topics I think this text is excellent. There is are nice treatments of cosmology, supergravity, and duality complimented by detailed appendices that provide a self-contained exposition of the necessary background material. Drees et al.
The treatment is a bit more detailed for the calculationally-oriented. While Drees et al. Jonathan O. Many-Body Approach to Electronic Excitations. Friedhelm Bechstedt. Theoretical Frontiers in Black Holes and Cosmology. Renata Kallosh. Eleftherios Papantonopoulos.
