The kth leg can be parametrized by using four parameters [mathematical expression not reproducible], which represent, respectively, the flyby radius, the flyby plane orientation, the (overall) leg flight time, and the fraction of the leg flight time at which DSM occurs.
The latter is parametrized by the superspace coordinates [Z.sup.M] = ([x.sup.[mu]], [eta], [bar.[eta]]) where [x.sup.[mu]] ([mu] = 0,1,..., D - 1) are the bosonic coordinates and ([eta], [bar.[eta]]) are a pair of Grassmannian variables obeying nilpotency and anticommutativity properties (i.e., [[eta].sup.2] = [bar.[eta]] = 0, [eta][bar.[eta]] + [bar.[eta]][eta] = 0).
