N = 1 Supersymmetric Gauge Theories
At least at a non-technical level, all of us have heard that super-symmetry (called susy for short), is a symmetry that mixes bosonic and fermionic degrees of freedom in a dynamical system. We will make this notion more precise during the course of these lectures; however before getting into that let us spend a few minutes to recall the motivation for the exercise we are going to undertake.
