@article{Intriligator2007LecturesOS, title={Lectures on supersymmetry breaking}, author={Kenneth A. Intriligator and Nathan Seiberg}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2007}, volume={24}, pages={S741 - S772} }

We review the subject of spontaneous supersymmetry breaking. First we consider supersymmetry breaking in a semiclassical theory. We illustrate it with several examples, demonstrating different phenomena, including metastable supersymmetry breaking. Then we give a brief review of the dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories. Finally, we use this dynamics to present various mechanisms for dynamical supersymmetry breaking. This paper is based on lectures given by the authors in 2007, at various…
