Unification and Supersymmetry: The Frontiers of Quark-Lepton by Rabindra N. Mohapatra
By Rabindra N. Mohapatra
Derived from a direction given on the collage of Maryland for complicated graduate scholars, this booklet bargains with many of the most recent advancements in our makes an attempt to build a unified thought of the basic interactions of nature. one of the themes coated are spontaneous symmetry breaking, grand unified theories, supersymmetry, and supergravity. the booklet starts off with a short overview of common particle thought and keeps with a dialogue of composite quarks, leptons, Higgs bosons, and CP violation; it concludes with attention of supersymmetric unification schemes, within which bosons and leptons are thought of in a few feel identical. The 3rd variation might be thoroughly revised and taken modern, fairly through together with discussions of the numerous experimental advancements in fresh years.

P → ν + p, νµ + e → νµ + e, νe + e → νe + e. 11) These processes have been observed  and they conﬁrm eq. 9) as the correct structure for the weak Hamiltonian up to a piece, which we denote by Hwk : 4GF Hwk = − √ k¯ ν γ µ (1 + γ5 )νJµem . 12) If we temporarily ignore eq. 12), we ﬁnd that the weak interaction Hamiltonian has all the right properties to incorporate an underlying local weak SU(2) symmetry. Under this weak SU(2) symmetry, the left-handed fermions must transform as doublets as follows: νeL uL d cos θ e− L C + sL sin θC L νµL .
