We formulate a general super duality conjecture on connections between parabolic categories O of modules over Lie superalgebras and Lie algebras of type A, based on a Fock space formalism of their Kazhdan–Lusztig theories which was initiated by Brundan. We show that the Brundan–Kazhdan–Lusztig (BKL) polynomials for gl(m|n) in our parabolic setup can be identified with the usual parabolic Kazhdan–Lusztig polynomials. We establish some special cases of the BKL conjecture on the parabolic category O of gl(m|n)-modules and additional results which support the BKL conjecture and super duality conjecture.
