## Description

Supersymmetry is an extension of the successful Standard Model of particle physics; it relies on the principle that fermions and bosons are related by a symmetry, leading to an elegant predictive structure for quantum field theory. This textbook provides a comprehensive and pedagogical introduction to supersymmetry and spinor techniques in quantum field theory. By utilising the two-component spinor formalism for fermions, the authors provide many examples of practical calculations relevant for collider physics signatures, anomalies, and radiative corrections. They present…

### Key features

- Contains many detailed examples of practical calculations and derivations of key results, serving as a pedagogical resource as well as a reference
- Demonstrates the translation between two-component and four-component fermion formalisms, so that the reader can make connections with other texts
- Provides background for other approaches beyond the Standard Model, with a focus on the seesaw model of neutrino masses, the two Higgs doublet model and grand unification
- Provides a good basis for an advanced class in particle theory, as well as a useful resource for self-study
