Synopsis

The story of the discovery of supersymmetry is a fascinating one, unlike that of any other major development in the history of science. This engaging book presents a view of the process, mainly in the words of people who participated. It combines anecdotal descriptions and personal reminiscences with more technical accounts of the trailblazers, covering the birth of the theory and its first years - the origin of the idea, four-dimensional field theory realization, and supergravity. The eyewitnesses convey to us the drama of one of the deepest discoveries in theoretical physics in the 20th century. This book will be equally interesting and useful to young researchers in high energy physics and to mature scholars - physicists and historians of science.

Gordon Kane is Professor of Physics at the University of Michigan. He has been a J S Guggenheim Fellow and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He has been a visiting professor at Rutherford Laboratory and Oxford University, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, and CERN, and has published over 140 research papers in particle theory as well as written and edited books on particle physics, both technical books and ones for the general public. M Shifman is Professor of Physics at the University of Minnesota. After receiving his PhD (1976) from the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics in Moscow he went through all stages of the academic career there. In 1990 he moved to the USA. He has published over 200 research papers in particle physics and field theory, and written and edited several books. In 1997 he was elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He has had the honor of receiving the 1999 Sakurai Prize for Theoretical Particle Physics.
