THE GEOMETRY (AND ALGEBRA) OF PI-INVERTIBLE SHEAVESQMAP Seminar

Line bundles and projective spaces play a central role in classical algebraic geometry. Y.I. Manin suggested that in supergeometry, line bundles should be replaced
with Pi-invertible sheaves: 1|1 bundles with an odd endomorphism whose square is -1. We discuss some new results on the projective superspaces associated to these objects, and the connections between Pi-invertible sheaves.
