This is a very short and informal course, mostly targeted to Master students and PhD. students (young postdocs may find it useful if they do not have experience with the topic). The goal will be to introduce the idea of solitons and their relation with Supersymmetry using two very concrete examples. The requisite to follow the course is just some familiarity with gauge fields, scalars and fermions. It will be good to have some basics of SUSY in mind, but the ideas and calculations can be followed without it.
