**FSI3340 Supersymmetri, 7,5 högskolepoäng (hp)(Supersymmetry)**

__Kursinnehåll:__

In particle physics, supersymmetry (often abbreviated SUSY) is a symmetry that relates elementary particles of one spin to another particle that differs by half a unit of spin and are known as superpartners. In other words, in a supersymmetric theory, for every type of boson there exists a corresponding type of fermion, and vice-versa.

The contents of the reading course in supersymmetry are: Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), supersymmetry algebra and supermultiplets, the Wess-Zumino model, cancellations of quadratic divergences, SUSY breaking, and sparticle phenomenology.
