Introductory textbooks for Supersymmetry?

  1. Feb 15, 2015 #1
    Hi everyone,

    As of late I've been really wanting to push on with my interest in particle Physics by tackling the rather daunting theoretical model that we call supersymmetry. However, to put it simply, I'm not entirely sure where to start! There's so many different textbooks on the subject out there, I was wondering if anyone could give me any specific recommendations; i don't want to end up waisting both money and time investing in a textbook that's either far too advanced for me at this stage (Post-grad stuff etc), or conversely, too simple. preferably, if the mathematics and the contents involved were around undergraduate level and (relatively) accessible that would be preferable thanks! Sorry to be fussy like that! Anyway, many thank you's to anyone who wouldn't mind helping me,

    I'm afraid that supersymmetry is not a topic that is accessible at the advanced undergraduate level.
