We introduce a supersymmetric analog of the classical Coxeter frieze patterns. Our approach is based on the relation with linear difference operators. We define supersymmetric analogs of linear difference operators called Hill’s operators. The space of these “superfriezes” is an algebraic supervariety, isomorphic to the space of supersymmetric second order difference equations, called Hill’s equations.
