A Personal View

Filed under: General — m759 @ 3:20 AM

"The editors are also grateful to
T. Kibble and Imperial College Press
for permission to reprint B. Zumino's paper
'Supersymmetry: A Personal View' . . . ."

— Preface to Symmetry in Mathematics and Physics
(AMS, 2009), a book based on talks at
a UCLA conference of Jan. 18-20, 2008

(For the book's title page, see yesterday morning's post Symmetry.)

This suggests a search in this journal for the term "supersymmetry."
That search yields some links that may be of further interest to
devotees of the Church of Synchronology.
