Abstract: Any non-split complex supermanifold is a deformation of a split supermanifold. These deformations are classified by group orbits in a non-abelian cohomology. For the case of a split supermanifold with no global nilpotent even vector fields, an injection of this non-abelian cohomology into an abelian cohomology is constructed. The cochains in the non-abelian complex appear as exponentials of cochains of nilpotent even derivations. Necessary conditions for a recursive construction of these cochains of derivations are analyzed up to terms of degree six. Results on classes of examples of supermanifolds of odd dimension beyond 5 are deduced.
