Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg continues his masterly exposition of quantum field theory. This third volume of The Quantum Theory of Fields presents a self-contained, up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to supersymmetry, a highly active area of theoretical physics that is likely to be at the center of future progress in the physics of elementary particles and gravitation. The text introduces and explains a broad range of topics, including supersymmetric algebras, supersymmetric field theories, extended supersymmetry, supergraphs, nonperturbative results, theories of supersymmetry in higher dimensions, and supergravity. A thorough review is given of the phenomenological implications of supersymmetry, including theories of both gauge and gravitationally-mediated supersymmetry breaking. Also provided is an introduction to mathematical techniques, based on holomorphy and duality, that have proved so fruitful in recent developments. This book contains much material not found in other books on supersymmetry, some of it published here for the first time. Problems are included.

Book Description:

In this third volume of The Quantum Theory of Fields, available for the first time in paperback, Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg continues his masterly exposition of quantum field theory. This volume presents a self-contained and comprehensive introduction to supersymmetry, a highly active area of theoretical physics. Along with mathematical formalism, a thorough review is given of the phenomenological implications of supersymmetry. The book contains much material not found in other books on supersymmetry, including previously unpublished results.

Review:

"Another landmark work...Weinberg builds up the necessary formal apparatus clearly and systematically, carefully motivating and stating the assumptions at each stage and delimiting the scope of each one...Weinberg is a master theoretical physicist, and this book is a model work of theoretical physics." Physics Today

"Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg presents a self-contained, up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to supersymmetry in the third volume of The Quantum Theory of Fields...The book surely will be an invaluable reference work for all physicists and for mathematicians working with supersymmetric theories." American Scientist

"Weinberg's style of presentation is as clear and meticulous as in his previous works. Physics comes first, and formalism is shaped to serve it...an enormous amount of literature is digested and made manageable...it is a tribute to this trilogy that it leaves one hoping it will evolve into a tetralogy." Journal of General Relativity and Gravitation

"Steven Weinberg, one of the greatest theoreticians in the past 50 years, has written a magisterial, no-holds-barred account of the theory in all its glory...a definitive text for succeeding generations." New Scientist

"Don't hesitate: buy this book. It will stand the test of time." Mathematical Reviews
