What exactly do you not like in the wiki articles and the references given there? –  MBN Jul 1 '12 at 13:32

Each of those terms have a rather technical meaning. To explain them usually takes several lectures each, at least. That you ask about them in one question indicates that you have no, or little prior knowledge. I think you should at least indicate why you are interested in those questions. –  orbifold Jul 1 '12 at 13:36

I would suggest splitting this into 3 separate questions, or at least breaking the symmetry breaking questions into a separate post. As it stands the post is not focused enough. –  DJBunk Jul 1 '12 at 20:23

SUSY is a symmetry that mixes fermions and bosons . It states that for each a fermion , there is a boson and for each a boson there is a fermion. As an example , For the graviton , there is a fermion called the gravitino .
