Supersymmetry is a remarkable invariance property of physical theories which extends the usual notion of a symmetry algebra to allow for the inclusion of fermionic generators. Field theories with supersymmetry exhibit many physically relevant phenomena such as quark confinement, dynamical symmetry breaking and non-perturbative dualities in a setting where they can be studied precisely using analytic methods. Supersymmetric QFTs have also played a key role in the development of the AdS/CFT correspondence, for which they provide the best understood examples. In this course, Dr. Nick Dorey will give an overview of these developments emphasizing those things which we can calculate exactly.

The GS-hosted International Graduate School Administration Forum at OIST planned for 14th and 15th March. The Forum will serve as an arena where like-minded individuals in the academic administrative field will gather to exchange ideas and develop a deeper understanding of successfully running an international graduate school in Japan.
