This is the third volume in a series of books on the general topics of Supers- metric Mechanics, with the ?rst and second volumes being published as Lecture Notes in Physics Vol. 698, Supersymmetric Mechanics - Vol. 1: Supersymmetry, Noncommutativity and Matrix Models (ISBN: 3-540-33313-4), and Lecture Notes in Physics Vol. 701, Supersymmetric Mechanics - Vol. 2: The Attractor Mechanism and Space Time Singularities (ISBN: 3-540-34156-0). The aim of this ongoing collection is to provide a reference corpus of suitable, introductory material to the ?eld, by gathering the signi?cantly expanded and edited versions of all tutorial lectures, given over the years at the well-established annual INFN-Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati Winter School on the Attractor Mechanism, directed by myself. The present set of notes results again 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.

From the reviews:
"This is the third in a series of books on supersymmetric mechanics. ... The book is based on series of lectures given by experts in the field. ... a useful collection of lectures on this topic of great current research activity. It is a handy reference for researchers in the field and also will be suitable reading for students to get themselves acquainted with the subject. All chapters have extensive bibliographies for those wishing to access the original literature." (Elizabeth Winstanley, Mathematics Reviews, Issue 2011 b)
