Editorial Reviews

Review

"Baer and Tata's Weak Scale Supersymmetry is the most phenomenological text, closest to what will be needed to make detailed interpretations of the data...Baer and Tata's book is a good introduction to practical supersymmetry theory and offers a helpful chapter on the superspace formalism and material on possible ways of breaking supersymmetry."
Gordon Kane, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Physics Today

Book Description

A comprehensive, practical and accessible 2006 introduction to supersymmetry for particle physicists. It develops the concepts of supersymmetry into a framework for describing unified theories of elementary particles. It leads to a straightforward recipe for writing supersymmetric gauge theories and the calculations necessary for practical applications at colliders and in cosmology.

I think, without any doubt, that this is the best introductory textbook on supersymmetric particle theories. There are a number of textbooks on supersymmetry that were published during the last 15 years. Many of them are much more formal and mathematical and not adequate for a first introduction to this subject. For instance you can check Wess-Bagger, Freund, P.C. West. This textbook has been carefully written and edited by Cambridge Univ. Press. The notation used is very consistent from beginning to end. The textbook is perfect as a continuation of a course on quantum field theory. The book is very complete and it covers from an order zero introduction to the subject to the most recent phenomenology. The authors are world leading experts on the collider phenomenology of supersymmetric field theories and this subject receives special attention. There are a couple of textbooks that attempted to publish some basic introduction to the phenomenology of supersymmetric theories, see for instance the S.Weinberg or the Mohapatra textbooks. On the other hand, none of them presents an introduction so extensive and careful to the topic as the Baer-Tata textbook. I strongly recommend this textbook to any graduate student of particle physics. I wish this textbook had been available when I first attempted to understand supersymmetric field theories. If you have read this textbook and are interested in more formal aspects of supersymmetry I recommend to continue your studies with another recent textbook by J.Terning.

I used this book to teach a one-semester course on Supersymmetry to physics graduate students who had completed a course in Particle Physics and/or Quantum Field Theory. I like this book a lot. It is very pedagogical, giving good examples to demonstrate general ideas. It is geared towards those of us who in interested in the search for Supersymmetry in particle physics experiments (present and future), and teaches you how to calculate cross sections and decays. The discussion of the variety of Supersymmetry models is done in a succinct manner, giving you the concepts and results you need without going into unnecessary details. When I wanted to delve into a topic further, I often found S. Weinberg's "The Quantum Theory of Fields III: Supersymmetry" to be useful. There are now a variety of good books on Supersymmetry on the market, but I think this one does the best job of preparing the reader for the search for Supersymmetry in particle physics experiments. The book uses the four-component spinor notation throughout (as does Weinberg's book), which is more familiar for practical calculations than the two-component notation found in most other Supersymmetry books. I found this to be an asset.
