Geometry of Supersymmetric Gauge Theories: Including an by Francois Gieres

By Francois Gieres

This monograph supplies an in depth and pedagogical account of the geometry of inflexible superspace and supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories. whereas the middle of the textual content is anxious with the classical concept, the quantization and anomaly challenge are in short mentioned following a accomplished advent to BRS differential algebras and their box theoretical purposes. one of the taken care of themes are invariant types and vector fields on superspace, the matrix-representation of the super-Poincaré team, invariant connections on reductive homogeneous areas and the supermetric procedure. numerous facets of the topic are mentioned for the 1st time in textbook and are constantly awarded in a unified geometric formalism. Requiring basically no heritage on supersymmetry and just a easy wisdom of differential geometry, this article is going to function a mathematically lucid creation to supersymmetric gauge theories.
