In this article, we endow the group of bisections of a Lie groupoid with compact base with a natural locally convex Lie group structure. Moreover, we develop thoroughly the connection to the algebra of sections of the associated Lie algebroid and show for a large class of Lie groupoids that their groups of bisections are regular in the sense of Milnor. 
The Lie group of vertical bisections of a regular Lie groupoid
Abstract In this note we construct an infinite-dimensional Lie group structure on the group of vertical bisections of a regular Lie groupoid. We then identify the Lie algebra of this group andExpand
To a Lie groupoid over a compact base $M$ , the associated group of bisection is an (infinite-dimensional) Lie group. Moreover, under certain circumstances one can reconstruct the Lie groupoid fromExpand
Re)constructing Lie groupoids from their bisections and applications to prequantisation
This paper is about the relation of the geometry of Lie groupoids over a fixed compact manifold and the geometry of their (infinite-dimensional) bisection Lie groups. In the first part of the paperExpand
Banach-Lie groupoids and generalized inversion
We study a few basic properties of Banach-Lie groupoids and algebroids, adapting some classical results on finite dimensional Lie groupoids. As an illustration of the general theory, we show that theExpand
n-transitivity of bisection groups of a Lie groupoid
The notion of n-transitivity can be carried over from groups of diffeomorphisms on a manifold M to groups of bisections of a Lie groupoid over M. The main theorem states that the n-transitivity isExpand
A differentiable monoid of smooth maps on Lie groupoids
In this article we investigate a monoid of smooth mappings on the space of arrows of a Lie groupoid and its group of units. The group of units turns out to be an infinite-dimensional Lie group whichExpand
Linking Lie groupoid representations and representations of infinite-dimensional Lie groups
The present paper links the representation theory of Lie groupoids and infinite-dimensional Lie groups. We show that smooth representations of Lie groupoids give rise to smooth representations ofExpand
A cohomology theory for Lie 2-algebras and Lie 2-groups
In this thesis, we introduce a new cohomology theory associated to a Lie 2-algebras and a new cohomology theory associated to a Lie 2-group. These cohomology theories are shown to extend theExpand
Lie groups of Poisson diffeomorphisms
While the symplectomorphismgroup of a symplecticmanifold is well-understood as an infinite-dimensional Lie group, little is known about the Poisson diffeomorphism group of other classes of PoissonExpand
Lie rackoids
We define a new differential geometric structure, called Lie rackoid. A Lie rackoid differentiates to Leibniz algebroids in a similar way as Lie groupoids differentiate to Lie algebroids. Its mainExpand


On the group of lagrangian bisections of a symplectic groupoid
The group of lagrangian bisections of a symplectic groupoid extends the concept of the symplectomorphism group. The flux homomorphism is a basic invariant of this group. It is shown that this groupExpand
The Lie Algebra of the Group of Bisections -A Chapter in Synthetic Differential Geometry of Groupoids-
Groupoids provide a more appropriate framework for differential geometry than principal bundles. Synthetic differential geometry is the avantgarde branch of differential geometry, in which nilpotentExpand
Towards a Lie theory of locally convex groups
Abstract.In this survey, we report on the state of the art of some of the fundamental problems in the Lie theory of Lie groups modeled on locally convex spaces, such as integrability of Lie algebras,Expand
Lie group structures on symmetry groups of principal bundles
Abstract In this paper we describe how one can obtain Lie group structures on the group of (vertical) bundle automorphisms for a locally convex principal bundle P over the compact manifold M . ThisExpand

A Smooth Model for the String Group
We construct a model for the string group as an infinite-dimensional Lie group. In a second step we extend this model by a contractible Lie group to a Lie 2-group model. To this end we need toExpand
Notes on regularity properties of infinite-dimensional Lie groups
The evolution of a C-regular Lie group G is shown to be smooth as a map to Ck+1([0, 1], G). We also give examples of non-regular Lie groups (modelled on non-Mackey complete spaces) for which someExpand
Differential calculus, manifolds and lie groups over arbitrary infinite fields
We present an axiomatic approach to finite- and infinite-dimensional differential calculus over arbitrary infinite fields (and, more generally, suitable rings). The corresponding basic theory ofExpand
Infinite-dimensional Lie groups without completeness restrictions
We describe a setting of infinite-dimensional smooth (resp., analytic) Lie groups modelled on arbitrary, not necessarily sequentially complete, locally convex spaces, generalizing the framework ofExpand
