The Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula for the chiral su(2) supergroup

  • C. Aragone

In the theory of supersymmetricSU(2) Yang-Mills fields described on the 8th dimensional superspace, the local gauge transformations constitute a group whose Lie algebra has as coefficients belonging to the Weyl-spinorial Grassmann algebra.

We present here a Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula for the chiralSU(2) supergroup and using this formula we give the finite form of each element of this group in terms of the local fields emering in the infinitesimal real superscalar generator.
