“Under Construction: A Progress Report on a Theory of SUSY Representations”

Compact Lie Algebras su(N) have aspects of their representations conveniently expressed in terms of matrices, but they also have some aspect that are most conveniently described by terms of graphical means, i.e. weight spaces, root space, Dynkin diagrams. Component fields, superfields, and superspace are all equivalent to using matrices. Little is known about related graphical approaches within this domain. In this talk a progress report is given on one such effort.
