Today's anagram of Stephen Patrick Martin is: Pertinent shark impact

Fall 2014 class: Physics 470/570 Electricity and Magnetism II

My research publications from inSPIRE.

"A Supersymmetry Primer" is my introduction to supersymmetry. Version 6 (released on September 6, 2011) includes a new chapter on superspace and superfields, and many other updates.

Some recent pedagogical summer school lectures I've given: slides for the ICTP 2013 Summer School on Particle Physics and notes for my TASI 2011 lectures on two-component fermions and supersymmetry.

SMH is a computer program library that I wrote with Dave Robertson that computes the mass of the Standard Model Higgs boson at complete 2-loop order with leading 3-loop corrections. It also minimizes the Standard Model effective potential in the same approximation. It is based on the paper 1407.4336.

SMH is an application of our program TSIL, which does the numerical computation of 2-loop self-energy integrals with arbitrary masses and external momentum.

Another application of TSIL is gluinopole, which 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.
