This is a set of lecture notes given by the author at the Universities of Göttingen and Wroclaw. The text presents the axiomatic approach to field theory and studies in depth the concepts of symmetry and supersymmetry and their associated generators, currents and charges. It is intended as a one-semester course for graduate students in the field of mathematical physics and high energy physics.

A concise description of the status of a fascinating scientific problem - the inverse variational problem in classical mechanics. The essence of this problem is as follows: one is given a set of equations of motion describing a certain classical mechanical system, and the question to be answered is: do these equations of motion correspond to some Lagrange function as its Euler-Lagrange equations? In general, not for every system of equations of motions does a Lagrange function exist; it can, however, happen that one may modify the given equations of motion in such a way that they yield the same set of solutions as the original ones and they correspond already to a Lagrange function. Moreover, there can even be infinitely many such Lagrange functions, the relations among which are not trivial. The book deals with this scope of problems. No advanced mathematical methods, such as contemporary differential geometry are used. The intention is to meet the standard educational level of a broad group of physicists and mathematicians.

Lopuszanski, Jan Tadeusz was born on October 21, 1923 in Lwów, Poland. Son of Wladyslaw Jakób and Janina Maria (Kuzmicz) Lopuszanski.
During 1945-50 he studied physics at the University of Wrocław. In Wrocław, in 1955 his Ph.D. at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow.
In the field of quantum field theory, he is most famous as co-author of the Haag-Lopuszanski-Sohnius theorem concerning the possibility of supersymmetry in renormalizable QFT's. In 1950, he received his M.A. Since 1947, he was part of regular staff member at the University of Wrocław. In 1968, he became a full professor.
During the years 1957–59, he was the vice dean and during the years 1962–65, was dean of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. From 1970 to 1984, he was director of the Institute of Theoretical Physics (Instytut Fizyki Teoretycznej Uniwersytet Wroclawski). From 1960 onward, he held the chair for mathematical methods in physics until he retired in 1994.
He had visiting professorships in Utrecht, NYU, IAS in Princeton, New Jersey, SUNY at Stony Brook, University of Göttingen, Bielefeld, Max Planck Institute in Munich, CERN in Geneva and ICTP in Trieste. He wrote about 80 original professional papers, 40 review articles and 5 major textbooks.
