This question already has an answer here:

I have a good background in linear algebra, Topology and Differential geometry. I would like to understand the concept of supersymmetry in theoretical physics, and hopefully read Witten's landmark paper Supersymmetry and Morse theory sometime later. Please suggest suitable references. Thanks

The best way to learn supersymmetry in my opinion is to watch lectures on it. Fernando Quevedo has a terrific lecture series available online here. He also has accompanied lecture notes with homework exercise which are crucial to do in order to get a good grasp of the material.

There are also many other free lecture notes on line which you can find by googling supersymmetry lecture notes.

  • $\begingroup$ @SandeepThilakan, nice post. From my brief look at the topics, I wouldn't suggest it as an introduction into Supersymmetry, but definitely as an extension. $\endgroup$ – JeffDror Feb 7 '14 at 20:16
