About this Reference Work

The book is the first full-size Encyclopedia which simultaneously covers such well-established and modern subjects as quantum field theory, supersymmetry, supergravity, M-theory, black holes and quantum gravity, noncommutative geometry, representation theory, categories and quantum groups, and their generalizations. The extraordinary historical part "the SUSY story," more than 700 authored articles from more than 250 high-level experts (including Nobel Prize Winner Gerard 't Hooft), a detailed (50 pages) Subject/Article three level index and an Author index, make the SUSY Encyclopedia an outstanding and indispensable book on the desk of researchers, experts, Ph.D. students, specialists and professionals in modern methods of theoretical and mathematical physics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This volume resembles the volumes of Kluwer’s general encyclopedia of mathematics … . all the articles, have been freshly written for this book. This is a fully original work. … This material is fascinating … . S. Duplij, the leading editor of this encyclopedia, and his co-editors have done a monumental job … . There are 480 oversized pages of encyclopedia with more than 700 articles, and then an Author index, a Subject index of 31 four-column pages, and a list of 116 abbreviations." (P. D. F. Ion, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2005 m)
