Description

Particle Physics 3: Supersymmetry and Grand Unification (Spring 2010, Stanford Univ.).

Instructor: Professor Leonard Susskind. In this set of lectures Professor Susskind continues his particle physics theme, moving on to supersymmetry, which describes the relationship between fermions and bosons. He connects this to the concept of vacuum energy, the energy density associated with "empty" space. Professor Susskind finishes with supersymmetry breaking and grand unified field theories, which predict proton decay. (from theoreticalminimum.com)
