Item description for Supersymmetric Methods in Quantum and Statistical Physics (Texts and Monographs in Physics) by Georg Junker...
This book gives an introduction to supersymmetric quantum mechanics and a comprehensive review of its applications in quantum and statistical physics. The classical version and the quantum version of Witten's model are studied in detail. Exact spectral properties of the model for the so-called shape invariant potentials are discussed. The quasi-classical quantization rules are derived. The topics covered also include the supersymmetric structure of a classical stochastic dynamical system obeying the Langevin or the Fokker-Planck equation, Pauli's Hamiltonian and its application to the paragmagnetism of a non-interacting electron gas in two and three dimensions, supersymmetry of Dirac's Hamiltonian, and others. The book addresses graduate students as well as scientists.

A very nice little book Dec 9, 2002
This is a very nice introduction to an elegant but rather neglected aspect of quantum mechanics. I like this book very much, and I refer to it quite often. It is very well written. I sincerely hope that the author will consider a new, enlarged edition with more details and an account of more recent aspects of the subject. ...
A good introduction Jun 26, 2000
This book provides a good and somewhat detailed introduction to the subject of supersymmetry in quantum mechanics and statistical physics. Unlike the limitations of published papers and/or lectures (which this book is based on), the author has and uses the luxury of space to include very useful detail, normally glossed over. This book is not however, an introduction to supersymmetry in general, but focuses on supersymmetry in quantum and statistical systems. It therefore provides a useful, but far from complete description of the subject. It is therefore well suited for people first entering the field, or as a limited review of the subject.
