Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

Could you pls advise me any textbooks or papers where I can find pedagogical introduction to N=2 Supersymmetry & familiarize myself...

Thank you very much
Best Regards

Hi,

Here are some suggestions:

Lecture Notes:

Duality in N=2 SUSY SU(2) Yang-Mills Theory: A pedagogical introduction to the work of Seiberg and Witten
http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9601007v1

Duality in Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theory : http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9702094v1

Introduction to S-Duality in N=2 Supersymmetric Gauge Theory : http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9701069v1

Les Houches lectures on supersymmetric Gauge Theories : http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0210044v2

Introduction to Supersymmetry : http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0101055v1

Books :

Supersymmetry By P.Binetruy

Supersymmetry and String Theory: Beyond the Standard Model By M.Dine

Modern Supersymmetry: Dynamics and Duality By J.Terning

There is also a good lecture By Gaiotto, I attached it

Just to complement what Qgravity posted:

The standard reference on harmonic superspace (the place where the most general explicit N=2 SUSY theories can be studied and quantized) is
Harmonic superspace by A.S. Galperin, E.A. Ivanov, V.I. Ogievetsky, E.S. Sokatchev. The first couple of chapters are really readable and interesting. Then it gets into the more technical details.

Maybe the best reference on projective superspace (where N=2 nonlinear sigma models and associated geometry are best studied) is
Lectures on nonlinear sigma-models in projective superspace by Sergei M. Kuzenko. Once again, the intro sections are very readable.
