Publisher Synopsis

'Any student or practising physicist who wants to learn about the phenomenological implications of TeV-scale supersymmetry without spending the time to master the more mathematical approaches to the subject would do well to acquire a copy of Supersymmetry in Particle Physics. It is a unique text that has value both on its own accord and as a supplement to larger and more comprehensive texts. This is indeed entry-level supersymmetry in its best and most practical sense.' Physics Today "If you are a physics student with good knowledge of quantum field theory or an experimentalist working on high-energy physics, and need a quick reference on supersymmetry (SUSY) on which you can find the rationale behind it, in addition to the most useful cross-section formulae, then the book by Ian Aitchison is probably the best choice for you. If you have no idea about SUSY but want (or need) to learn its basics, again this is a very good choice. " Diego Casadei, NYU and CERN "Attention is paid to making a clear presentation. In particular, the mathematical descriptions used throughout are easily accessible for anyone familiar with ordinary quantum field theory. In total, this book is an excellent and nearly ideal introduction to the topic of supersymmetry, highly recommendable to anyone who wishes to enter this field as a student or researcher, or for anyone who is only interested in understanding the ongoing discussions on supersymmetric theories." Axel Maas, Mathematical Reviews "Any student or practicing physicist who wants to learn about the phenomenological implications of TeV-scale supersymmetry without spending the time to master the more mathematical approaches to the subject would do well to acquire a copy of Supersymmetry in Particle Physics. It is a unique text that has value both on its own accord and as a supplement to larger and more comprehensive texts. This is indeed entry-level supersymmetry in its best and most practical sense."
