Why superspace formulation works only for at most 4 supersymmetries?

    Why superspace formulation works only for at most 4 supersymmetries?

    For more than 4 supersymmetries, why some of the supersymmetries would not be manifested?


    What's the consideration here?

    Hmm actually, does superspace formulation work for more than one supersymmetry? Most examples only put a generator in.

    i read this statement in the Vol I of "Quantum Field Theory and Strings: A Course for Mathematicians" by Pierre Deligne et al. (eds.).

    But there's no further explanation there.
