Supersymmetry

Conference paper
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 15/1976)

Abstract

Supersymmetry is an attempt to enlarge the concept of Lie-Algebras. This attempt has been successful [1]: conserved currents have been constructed in the framework of renormalizable field theories such that the conserved charges form a closed algebra only if commutators or anti-commutators are used respectively. Theories which possess such a symmetry have interesting properties, there is a remarkable cancellation of divergencies [2]. Fields with different spin (and different statistic) are in the same multiplet, supersymmetries contain the Poincaré group in a non-trivial way.
