Given the free propagator of a matrix‐valued field φαβ in the form <φαβ(x), φγδ (0)> = (1/2) (δαγδβδαδδβγ − 2cδαβδγδ) Δ (x), we derive an integral representation for the matrix superpropagator <φNαβ(x),φNγδ(0)> for arbitrary N, and apply this to find the exponentially parametrized gravity superpropagator <|−g(x)|ω g αβ (x), |−g(0)|ω g γδ (0)> with g μν(x) ≡ [exp κφ(x)]μν. Other applications are also mentioned.
