Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: From Theory to Experiment

1st Edition

Shaaban Khalil, Stefano Moretti
December 18, 2017

Supersymmetry (SUSY) is one of the most important ideas ever conceived in particle physics. It is a symmetry that relates known elementary particles of a certain spin to as yet undiscovered particles that differ by half a unit of that spin (known as Superparticles). Supersymmetric models now stand...
