Introduction to Supersymmetry
One theme which underlies the development of particle physics is the application of ever broader symmetries to particle interactions. A new symmetry always relates and unifies previously distinct phenomena. The initial appeal of a symmetry may be based only on reasons of mathematical elegance. It may take some years to find applications in nature.
