The geometry of graded principal bundles is discussed in the framework of graded manifold theory of Kostant–Berezin–Leites. We first review the basic elements of this theory establishing at the same time supplementary properties of graded Lie groups and their actions. Particular emphasis is given in introducing and studying free actions in the graded context. Next, we investigate the geometry of graded principal bundles; we prove that they have several properties analogous to those of ordinary… Expand
