    I would like to know what are the prequisites for a graduate course with a handle "supergeometry and applications in physics", Iv'e read somewhere that it uses a lot of algebraic geometry, schemes, I guess that after the lecturer will publish the syllabus with the prequisites, I'll be wiser, nontheless I would like to know form others well versed in this topic which is obviously under 'mathematical physics'.

    Re: SuperGeometry.

    I would say an undergraduate degree in mathematics or theorectical physics with some knowledge of differential geometry and/or relativistic field theory. Probably some understanding of group theory supersymmetry is an extension of the Poincare symmetry group. I'd guess you'd want to have taken some more basic graduate coarses in geometry applications to field theory before this coarse.
