This article is an experimentalist's method of the knowledge of nuclear phenomena. within the early chapters, awareness is given to a number of primary recommendations. The actual features obtain emphasis mostly textual content, whereas the corresponding mathematical info are handled extra totally in appendices. difficulties are provided for resolution on the finish of many sections, and reference tables of the various kind of well-established nuclear homes accompany the textual content. For extra entire tables, reference is made to the voluminous and worthy average compilations.

Given the supermultiplet content of the theory, the form of the superpotential is restricted by the requirement of gauge invariance [see eq. 133)]. In any given theory, only a subset of the parameters Li , M ij , and y ijk are allowed to be non-zero. The parameter Li is only allowed if Φi is a gauge singlet. ) The entries of the mass matrix M ij can only be non-zero for i and j such that the supermultiplets Φi and Φj transform under the gauge group in representations that are conjugates of each other.

C. 104) Here we have used the identity eq. 30) on the second term, which came from (δFi )W i . Now we can use eq. 102) to observe that W ij ∂µ φj = ∂µ δW δφi . 105) Therefore, eq. 106) which explains why we chose its name as we did. The remaining terms in δLint are all linear in Fi or F ∗i , and it is easy to show that they cancel, given the results for W i and W ij that we have already found. A Supersymmetry Primer 31 Actually, we can include a linear term in the superpotential without disturbing the validity of the previous discussion at all: 1 1 W = Li φi + M ij φi φj + y ijk φi φj φk .
