Is the superconformal algebra in five dimensions, $F(4)$, a subalgebra of the (maximal) six-dimensional superconformal algebra $OSp(8|4)$?
What do the supercharges in extended supersymmetry do? In $N=1$ supersymmetry there are a certain number of fermions and and equal number of bosons. You can transform all fermions to the bosons (and ...
It might be a silly question, but I was never mathematically introduced to the topic. Is there a representation for Grassmann Variables using real field. For example, gamma matrices have a ...
Is there a reason why $\int\! d\theta~\theta = 1$ for a Grassmann integral? Books give arguments for $\int\! d\theta = 0$ which I can follow, but not for the former one.
I'm having some trouble understanding how to extend representation theory from Lie algebras to super Lie algebras, in particular with $psl(2|2)$. Ultimately I'm interested in 2D quantum sigma models ...
Are Grassmann numbers a concept of graded Lie algebras or is something specific to superalgebras? What are they (i.e: how are they defined, important properties, etc.)? Is there a reasonable ...
There is another paradox that I need to resolve: The Berezin integration rules for Grassmann odd variables give the same result as differentiation: If $f=x+\theta\psi$ is a superfunction, the ...
In Quantum field theory by Lewis H. Ryder, a supermultiplet is mentioned with no explanation as to what one is.
