    Suspersymmetry

    I am totally confused.

    A SUSY transformation acting on a superfield is written as

    exp i(eQ+e'Q'-xP)

    where e and e' are grassman spinors, Q and Q' are the susy generators and P is the operator for translations.

    How does the superfield see lorentz transformations?

    Unless there's someone lurking around here that I don't know about this question is beyond what we can help you with. Try your question here in the "Beyond the Standard Model" subforum. (I could take a crack at it myself, but as I am still studying such things I could easily lead you astray. So I won't. )

    Oh Ok, well thanks for the link anyway. well if you are still studying such things then if I can be of any help then feel free to ask. Are you an undergrad? I am a PhD student, although finding it hard!!

    I have a Masters (in QFT) and have done some other graduate work, but I had to stop due to a medical problem. At this point I need to get a job before I can finish the PhD. However I've been doing a great deal of studying on my own. My focus has been to get to the point where I can learn string theory. SUSY is a step in the process and I haven't quite got there yet, Mathematically speaking, but I have the basic idea about it in my head. (I'm currently working my way through Weinberg's excellent Field Theory books. His approach is far more Mathematical than my classes were and goes much further than I have studied before. Supersymmetry is in book 3 and whereas I can "understand" it, I lack the details for now.)

    Thanks for the help offer. I may take you up on it.
