Integral invariants of the Buttin bracket

  • O. M. Khudaverdian
  • R. L. Mkrtchian


We study the densities (most general objects which may be integrated over supersurfaces in superspace), invariant with respect to supercanonical transformations which do not change the Buttin bracket. The only such nontrivial object is, in a definite sense, the odd semidensity explicitly constructed here.

AMS subject classification (1980)
