Abstract

A graded Cartan‐type connection is devised on a bundle of graded affine frames over superspace. The relation of the gauged graded affine group to the geometry of superspace is discussed in the context of bundle reduction to simulate spontaneous symmetry breakdown. A complex quaternionic calculus is used to simplify the algebraic analysis.
