(0,2) Fundamentals

  • Ilarion V. Melnikov
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 951)


In this chapter we introduce a number of notational conventions, describe our primary object of study—the (0,2) supersymmetry algebra, and give a Lagrangian field realization of this structure.
