Modern Supersymmetry: Dynamics and Duality

6 June 2006

by John Terning, Oxford University Press. Hardback ISBN 0198567634 £55.


The book begins with a brief review of supersymmetry and the construction of the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model and approaches to supersymmetry breaking. It also reviews general non-perturbative methods that led to holomorphy and the Affleck-Dine-Seiberg superpotential as powerful tools for analysing supersymmetric theories. Seiberg duality is discussed with example applications, paying special attention to its use in understanding dynamical supersymmetry breaking. Alongside an overview of important recent developments in supersymmetry the book covers topics of interest to both formal and phenomenological theorists.
