Supersymmetry calculations

  1. Apr 24, 2015 #1
    Hi there,

    In particle physics there is famous books as Peskin's book " To Quantum Field Theory (Frontiers in Physics) " to learn matrix element amplitude and cross section calculations, like ee -> mu mu.

    Are there similar references for supersymmetry to learn how to calculate the cross section of prototype supersymetric processes ?

    The ideas don't change much... you may just have more diagrams to add up and different vertices...
    One book which has some calculations is : M.Drees, R.M. Godbole and P.Roy - Theory and Phenomenology of Sparticles (eg. ch.6 and I think it has the vertices in appendices A,B).

    Also it depends on the context, eg for WIMPs neutralinos you can use the expansion in velocities and work with helicity states to deduce the partial wave amplitudes and cross sections from them.
