The purpose of this paper is to investigate finite-dimensional superbialgebras and Hopf superalgebras. We study connected superbialgebras and provide a classification of non-trivial superbialgebras and Hopf superalgebras in dimension n with n≤4.

Key words: superalgebra; superbialgebra; Hopf superalgebra; classification.
