UConn Physics Colloquium
Supersymmetry and How it Helps Understand Our World
William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute
University of Minnesota
I review the advent of supersymmetry in physics, its original motivations and roots. The essence of the phenomenon is explained in general-physics terms. Then I outline how supersymmetry can help us understand our world, both at short distances and as a tool for solving long-standing problems of strong interactions.
