Ph 235: Supersymmetry

Ph 235b will cover supersymmetric field theories in four dimensions, their quantization, basics of supergravity, and supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model. Ph235c will be devoted to nonperturbative methods in supersymmetric field theory.

My office is 451 Lauritsen. Send me an email if you would like to have a meeting.

There will be no official homework; grading will be done on the basis of the final exam. Below I will post suggested HW problems; they will not be graded, but you are welcome to discuss them with me.
