Supersymmetry breakdown in supersymmetric quantum mechanics

  • D. Lancaster


We give a pedagogical introduction to supersymmetric quantum mechanics with emphasis on the question of spontaneous supersymmetry breaking. Various models both withN=1 andN=2 supersymmetry are then presented and analysed.


Symmetry and conservation laws 

Нарушение суперсимметрии в суперсимметричной квантовой механике


Предлагается педагогическое введение в суперсимметричную квантовую механику, обращая особое внимание на вопрос спонтанного нарушения суперсимметрии. Затем анализируются различные модели суперсимметрии сN=1 иN=2.


Si dà un introduzione pedagogica alla meccanica quantistica supersimmetrica dando particolare risalto al problema della violazione spontanea della supersimmetria. Si presentano ed analizzano quindi vari modelli con supersimmetriaN=1 eN=2.
