Spring 2013 class: Physics 370 Electricity and Magnetism I
"A Supersymmetry Primer" is my pedagogical introduction to supersymmetry. Version 6 (released on September 6, 2011) includes a new chapter on superspace and superfields, and many other updates.
The lecture notes for my TASI 2011 lectures on two-component fermions and supersymmetry are here. Also available: the slides for various lectures that I've given on supersymmetry at the 2010 PreSUSY summer school, and the 2008 CERN/Fermilab Hadron Collider Physics Summer School, and the 2005 ICTP Summer School on Particle Physics.
TSIL is a computer program I wrote with Dave Robertson for the numerical computation of 2-loop self-energy integrals with arbitrary masses and external momentum. A sample application, gluinopole, computes the two-loop pole mass of the gluino in minimal supersymmetry.
Here is the web page (including errata, and a version with the -+++ metric) for the review paper 0812.1594 , "Two-component spinor techniques and Feynman rules for quantum field theory and supersymmetry", by Herbi K. Dreiner, Howard E. Haber, and me. The current v5 is very close to the one published in Physics Reports.
