On complexity of envelopes of piecewise linear functions, unions and intersections of polygons
These results were generalized greatly by Romans who introduced two infinite families of nonlinear SCA’s with bosonic supersymmetry generators and called them quasi-superconformal algebras (QSCA’s) . A classification of the complex forms of reductive QSCA’s was given in .
Real forms of nonlinear superconformal and quasi-superconformal algebras and their unified realization
This is also expected from the results of Romans who argued that the nonlinear QSCA’s should be obtainable from affine Lie algebras via Drinfeld-Sokolov hamiltonian reduction.
