Relevance of supersymmetric quantum mechanics?

  1. Apr 7, 2010 #1
    It is known that supersymmetric quantum mechanics based methods offer (less laborious) solutions to many problems where conventional methods (of solving Schrödinger equation) are much more laborious. Apart from that, is there any other relevance of this subject? Does this provide any insight in quantum mechanics or quantum field theory?

    I actually didn't know that supersymmetry offered neat solutions to problems. One important feature of it would be that it predicts new particles, which may or may not- but if they exist, are expected to be- found at the LHC.

    I know it also offers a solution to one of the theoretical objections to the standard model, but can't for the life of me remember which one at the minute...
