It is a classical fact in Poisson geometry that the cotangent bundle of a Poisson manifold has the structure of a Lie algebroid. Manifestations of this structure are the Lichnerowicz differential on multivector fields (calculating Poisson cohomology) and the Koszul bracket of differential forms. "Raising indices" by the Poisson tensor maps the de Rham differential to the Lichnerowicz differential and the Koszul bracket to the Schouten bracket. In this paper, we present a homotopy analog of the…

Shifted Derived Poisson Manifolds Associated with Lie Pairs
We study the shifted analogue of the “Lie–Poisson” construction for $$L_\infty $$ L ∞ algebroids and we prove that any $$L_\infty $$ L ∞ algebroid naturally gives rise to shifted derived Poisson
On a Batalin–Vilkovisky operator generating higher Koszul brackets on differential forms
We introduce a formal $$\hbar $$ -differential operator $$\Delta $$ that generates higher Koszul brackets on the algebra of (pseudo)differential forms on a $$P_{\infty }$$ -manifold. Such an
L-infinity bialgebroids and homotopy Poisson structures on supermanifolds
We generalize to the homotopy case a result of K. Mackenzie and P. Xu on relation between Lie bialgebroids and Poisson geometry. For a homotopy Poisson structure on a supermanifold $M$, we show that
Non-linear homomorphisms of algebras of functions are induced by thick morphisms.
In 2014, Voronov introduced the notion of thick morphisms of (super)manifolds as a tool for constructing $L_{\infty}$-morphisms of homotopy Poisson algebras. Thick morphisms generalise ordinary
Graded Geometry, Q‐Manifolds, and Microformal Geometry
We give an exposition of graded and microformal geometry, and the language of Q‐manifolds. Q‐manifolds are supermanifolds endowed with an odd vector field of square zero. They can be seen as a

Warps and duality for double vector bundles
A linear section of a double vector bundle is a parallel pair of sections which form a vector bundle morphism; examples include the complete lifts of vector fields to tangent bundles and the

Graded Manifolds and Drinfeld Doubles for Lie Bialgebroids
We define graded manifolds as a version of supermanifolds endowed with an extra Z-grading in the structure sheaf, called weight (not linked with parity). Examples are ordinary supermanifolds, vector

Double Lie algebroids were discovered by Kirill Mackenzie from the study of double Lie groupoids and were defined in terms of rather complicated conditions making use of duality theory for Lie
Algebraic Constructions in the Category of Lie Algebroids
A generalized notion of a Lie algebroid is presented. Using this, the Lie algebroid generalized tangent bundle is obtained. A new point of view over (linear) connections theory on a fiber bundle is
Lie algebroids and homological vector fields
The notion of a Lie algebroid, introduced by J. Pradines, is an analogue of the algebra of a Lie group for differentiable groupoids. Lie algebroids combine the properties of Lie algebras and
