A proseminar in Theoretical Physics coordinated by Prof. C. Anastasiou will be held in Spring 2010. The topic: "Supersymmetry" will cover subjects related to supersymmetry in quantum field theory from a theoretical and a phenomenological perspective.

This is the main website for this Proseminar.

Suggested Literature

The discussion of the general aspects of supersymmetry can be found in several books and reviews. Here we give a short list of references in which the basic notions of supersymmetry are described together with some of the more advanced topics.
