Continuing the tradition of its predecessor, "Ideas and Methods of Supersymmetry and Supergravity, Second Edition" provides a detailed, self-contained review of four-dimensional simple supersymmetry and supergravity. As interest in supersymmetry is expected to increase in the coming years, this new edition presents updates on important recent developments in the field. This edition also features numerous exercises throughout the text as well as a separate solutions manual. Suitable for students, researchers, and readers with limited background knowledge, this book includes all of the fundamental mathematics and physics material needed to fully understand the concepts presented in each chapter.
