I have an idea of supersymmetry in quantum mechanics, can you suggest a book on "supersymmetry in quantum field theory", which has sufficient mathematical rigour like "Peskin and Schroeder"

    $\begingroup$ @Arnold Neumair : Well I know that Peskin and Schroeder is not so mathematically rigorous, but I needed a book of that sort of mathematical rigour. $\endgroup$ – Jaswin Jun 19 '12 at 12:12
  • $\begingroup$ FYI: Found these SUSY lectures by Matteo Bertolini online, which also links to other online SUSY lectures (although mathematical rigor seems not to be the primary objective here). $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Mar 31 '14 at 13:29

The Book by Wess & Bagger is in my opinion the best book on Supersymmetry. It is written in a style that is meant for application in QFT, meaning, it is not too abstract and has alot of exercises.

Most papers I have read are written using the notation of Wess & Bagger. This might be due to the fact that Wess (together with Zumino) is one of the first people to actually use SUSY in a 4D QFT context.
