Workshop: SuperGeometry and SuperModuli: March 27-31, 2023

Organizing by: Sergio Cacciatori (Università degli studi dell’Insubria),Samuel Grushevsky (SCGP),Alexander Polishchuk (University of Oregon) A supermanifold is the generalization of a usual manifold when some of the coordinates are even variables, and some are odd.The mathematical foundations of supergeometry were established in the 1970s and 1980s. While much of the motivation for this came from […]
