My research publications from the inSPIRE database.

"A Supersymmetry Primer" is my introduction to supersymmetry.
Version 7 (January, 2016) includes many updates over previous versions.

Some 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.

TSIL (Two-loop Self-energy Integral Library) and 3VIL (3-loop Vacuum Integral Library) are computer program libraries that Dave Robertson and I wrote and maintain. They perform the numerical computation of Feynman integrals for, respectively, 2-loop self-energy and 3-loop vacuum diagrams, with arbitrary masses. TSIL is based on the papers hep-ph/0307101 and hep-ph/0501132, while 3VIL is based on hep-ph/1610.07720.

SMH is a computer program library 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 was also written with Dave Robertson, as an application of TSIL, and is based on the paper 1407.4336.

Another application of TSIL is the 2-loop SUSYQCD contributions to the gluino and squark pole masses, recently implemented in SOFTSUSY 3.7.0 by Ben Allanach, Dave Robertson, Roberto Ruiz de Austri, and me. For a description of this, see the manual: 1601.06657.

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.
