We give an explicit formula, as a formal differential operator, for quantum microformal morphisms of (super)manifolds that we introduced earlier. Such quantum microformal morphisms are essentially oscillatory integral operators or Fourier integral operators of a particular kind. They act on oscillatory wave functions, whose algebra extends the algebra of formal power series in Planck's constant. In the classical limit, quantum microformal morphisms reproduce, as the main term of the asymptotic…

Tangent functor on microformal morphisms
We show how the tangent functor extends naturally from ordinary smooth maps to "microformal" (or "thick") morphisms of supermanifolds, a notion that we introduced earlier. Microformal morphisms
The "nonlinear pullback" of functions and a formal category extending the category of supermanifolds
We introduce mappings between function spaces on smooth (super)manifolds, which are generally nonlinear and which generalize the pullbacks with respect to smooth maps. The construction uses canonical
Graded Geometry, Q‐Manifolds, and Microformal Geometry
We give an exposition of graded and microformal geometry, and the language of Q‐manifolds. Q‐manifolds are supermanifolds endowed with an odd vector field of square zero. They can be seen as a

We extend the category of (super)manifolds and their smooth mappings by introducing a notion of microformal, or “thick,” morphisms. They are formal canonical relations of a special form, constructed

Thick morphisms of supermanifolds and oscillatory integral operators
We show that thick morphisms (or microformal morphisms) between smooth (super)manifolds, introduced by us before, are classical limits of 'quantum thick morphisms' defined here as particular
