We introduce simple and more advanced concepts that have played a key role in the development of supersymmetric systems. This is done by first describing various supersymmetric quantum mechanics models. Topics covered include the basic construction of supersymmetric field theories, the phase structure of supersymmetric systems with and without gauge particles, superconformal theories and infrared duality in both field theory and string theory. A discussion of the relation of conformal symmetry… 
Two loop effective potential for the minimal supersymmetric standard model
I compute the complete two-loop effective potential for the minimal supersymmetric standard model in the Landau gauge. This enables an accurate determination of the minimization conditions for the
Supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on conformal supergravity backgrounds in ten dimensions
A bstractWe consider bosonic supersymmetric backgrounds of ten-dimensional conformal supergravity. Up to local conformal isometry, we classify the maximally supersymmetric backgrounds, determine
Supersymmetry algebra in super Yang-Mills theories
A bstractWe compute supersymmetry algebra (superalgebra) in supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories (SYM) consisting of a vector multiplet including fermionic contribution in six dimensions. We show that
Vacuum energy sequestering and conformal symmetry
In a series of recent papers Kaloper and Padilla proposed a mechanism to sequester standard model vacuum contributions to the cosmological constant. We study the consequences of embedding their
Line operators in supersymmetric gauge theories and the 2d-4d relation
Four-dimensional gauge theories with \(\mathcal N=2\) supersymmetry admit half-BPS line operators. We review the exact localization methods for analyzing these operators. We also review the roles
The higher spin/vector model duality
This paper is mainly a review of the dualities between Vasiliev’s higher spin gauge theories in AdS4 and three dimensional large N vector models, with focus on the holographic calculation of
The gauge/gravity correspondence for non‐supersymmetric theories
We review the string construction of the “orientifold field theories” and we show that for these theories the gauge/gravity correspondence is only valid for a large number of colours.
Supersymmetric Quantum Mechanics and Path Integrals
Supersymmetry plays a main role in all current thinking about superstring theory. Indeed, many remarkable properties of string theory have been explained using supersymmetry as a tool. In this
The gravity duals of $ \mathcal{N}=2 $ superconformal field theories
A bstractWe study the gauge/gravity duality for theories with four dimensional $ \mathcal{N}=2 $ supersymmetries. We consider the large class of generalized quiver field theories constructed recently
Normalization of the Ground State of the Supersymmetric Harmonic Oscillator
Supersymmetry plays a main role in all current thinking about superstring theory. Indeed, many remarkable properties of string theory have been explained using supersymmetry as a tool. So far, there
