So I've been trying to think about some papers in Supersymmetry and I need to somehow define a derivative of a supernumber, with respect to another supernumber. I mean a supernumber to be a number with an ordinary "body" and a "soul" which is a product of an even number of Grassmann numbers. Call it [itex] z=z_{B}+z_{S} [/itex].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know what properties to expect from a derivative with respect to ordinary numbers and Grassmann numbers *separately* but I'm lost on how to combine them. In addition, I would like the body and soul to be complex.

Thanks for any tips
