Course# PHYS-817: Supersymmetry

Summary

Supersymmetry is the unique quantum extension of the symmetry principles of relativity. This course offers a first but broad introduction covering the role of Supersymmetry in our understanding of both physics beyond the Standard Model and non-perturbative phenomena in quantum field theory.

Quantum field theory

In theoretical physics, quantum field theory (QFT) is a theoretical framework that combines classical field theory, special relativity, and quantum mechanics. QFT is used in particle physics to cons
