I was looking at this recommendation list,
I guess the above is advised keeping a graduate student in mind.
- Can anyone kindly elaborate on the year/stage of career in which the target audience graduate students are in?
A basic familiarity with supersymmetry (like say the first 10 chapters of Wess and Bagger) is probably not sufficient to be able to grasp the reading list given above.
- How much is expected to be known for the above list?
- I was wondering if some experts in this field can explain as to how does a graduate student begin to read these papers and how to go about it.
To may be contrast - I would normally read physics and mathematics books with extreme detail like trying understand and work out every step of the argument and would also do homeworks/assignments with equal amount of detail. Is that how one is supposed to read the recommendations made above?
- Like how much time should one devote to any one of these papers? How much in one shot? If one gets stuck (like i often do because of lack of knowledge) then what does one do?
Again to compare, my experience is that 2 weeks is typically the time that is given for a graduate level QFT homework.
