19. ### How to build supersymmetry lagrangians

Hi, In SUSY we introduce chiral superfield, vector superfield, then build some invariants and get the SUSY lagrangians which after decomposition into normal fields (F and D terms) gives us for example ordinary QED plus some other terms. And we call this SUSY-QED. I have following question...
