superspace

Physicists often refer to a supersymmetric analogues of manifold-like spaces as superspaces, regardless the formalism. Hence a superspace can be an affine superspace (the affine counterpart of the supervector space over real or complex numbers), superscheme, supermanifold (of either Leites or de Witt kind) etc.
