- Publisher's Summary
- This is the third volume in a series of books on the general topics of Supersymmetric Mechanics, with the first and second volumes being published as "Lect. Notes Phys. 698, Supersymmetric Mechanics - Volume 1: Supersymmetry, Noncommutativity and Matrix Models" (ISBN: 3540333134), and "Lect. Notes Phys. 701, Supersymmetric Mechanics - Volume 2: The Attractor Mechanism and Space Time Singularities" (ISBN: 3540341560). The aim of this ongoing collection is to provide a reference corpus of suitable, introductory material to the field, by gathering the significantly expanded and edited versions of all tutorial lectures, given over the years at the well established international and annual INFN-Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati Winter School on the Attractor Mechanism. The present set of notes result from the participation and dedication of prestigious lecturers, such as Iosif Bena, Sergio Ferrara, Renata Kallosh, Per Kraus, Finn Larsen and Boris Pioline. As usual, the lectures were subsequently carefully edited and reworked, taking into account the extensive follow-up discussions. The present volume emphasizes topics of great recent interest, namely general concepts of attractors in supersymmetric gravity and black holes.

- This is the second volume in a series of books on the general theme of Supersymmetric Mechanics; the series is based on lectures and discussions held in 2005 and 2006 at the INFN-Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati. The first volume appears as "Lect. Notes Physics, Vol. 698" ("Supersymmetric Mechanics , Vol .1: Supersymmetry, Noncommutativity and Matrix Models" (2006) ISBN: 3-540-33313-4). The present extensive lecture supplies a pedagogical introduction, at the non-expert level, to the attractor mechanism in space-time singularities. In such a framework, supersymmetry seems to be related to dynamical systems with fixed points, describing the equilibrium state and the stability features of the thermodynamics of black holes. After a qualitative overview, explicit examples realizing the attractor mechanism are treated at some length; they include relevant cases of asymptotically flat, maximal and non-maximal, extended supergravities in 4 and 5 dimensions. A number of recent advances along various directions of research on the attractor mechanism are also given.

- This is the first volume in a series of books on the general theme of Supersymmetric Mechanics; the series is based on lectures and discussions held in 2005 and 2006 at the INFN-Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati. The selected topics include supersymmetry and supergravity, the attractor mechanism, black holes, noncommutative mechanics, super-Hamiltonian formalism and matrix models. All lectures are intended for beginners at the graduate level and nonspecialists from related fields of research and a substantial effort was made to incorporate in the extensive write-ups the results of the animated discussion sessions which followed the individual lectures. A second volume appears as Lecture Notes Physics, Vol. 701 "Supersymmetric Mechanics - Vol. 2 : The Attractor Mechanism" (2006), ISBN: 3-540-34156-0.
