### Almost but not quite a Lie algebroid: what is it?

In some calculations, I have arrived at the following algebraic structure, reminiscent of a Lie algebroid, but not quite.
I have a real line bundle $E \to M$, on whose smooth sections $\Gamma(E)$ I ...

### Continuous and smooth Lie groupoid cohomology

In the paper by Weinstein and Xu: Extensions of symplectic groupoids and quantization, J. Reine Angew. Math. 417 (1991), there are two versions of Lie groupoid cohomology. The same differential ...

### What's an example of a commutative algebra over $\mathbb Q$ that fails to satisfy this version of the “PBW theorem”

In a recent question, I recalled the notion of differential operator, polyderivation, and principal symbol for a commutative algebra $A$ over some fixed commutative ring $k$. (I will not repeat those ...

### For which algebras does \{Differential Operators\} satisfy a PBW-like theorem?

Let $k$ be a commutative ring, $A$ a commutative $k$-algebra, and for some other part of why I'm asking this question I only care about the case when $k \supseteq \mathbb Q$. Recall the following ...

### Differential forms on an almost complex manifold

Hello!
Let $M$ be an almost complex manifold. Let $TM$ denote its tangent bundle. Then we have the decomposition $TM\otimes\mathbb{C}=T^{1,0}M\oplus T^{0,1}M$ corresponding to the eigenvalues of the ...

### Examples of Lie Algebroids

The concept of a Lie Algebroid is given an important geometric meaning in the framework of Generalized Complex Geometry. For reference, the (barebones) definition of a Lie Algebroid is a vector bundle ...

### Is there any relation between deformation and extension of Lie algebras?

In a paper of A. Weinstein on the geometry of Poisson manifolds, he relates the formal linearization around a zero, p, of the Poisson bivector to extensions of the Lie algebra induced by the bivector ...

### Geometry and Integrability in Other Bundles

Background: Suppose $E=TM$ is the tangent bundle to some differentiable manifold $M^n$. If we specify some subbundle $D\subset TM$ (distribution of $k$-planes) then there are two natural situations ...

### Is the cohomology of the corresponding Lie algebroid an invariant under equivalence of source-simply-connected Lie groupoids?

Recall the related notions of Lie groupoid, Lie algebroid, generalized morphism of Lie groupoids, and cohomology of Lie algebroid. Henceforth, I will drop the word "Lie" for all those things listed ...

### When does a VBLA induce an isomorphism on Lie algebroid cohomology?

This question is geared towards the experts, so I will only briefly gloss the definitions. Everything I say is in the category of finite-dimensional smooth manifolds, and whenever I say "$\mathbb ...

### Do Lie algebroids pull back (along submersions)?

There are more general definitions, but for my purposes a Lie algebroid on a smooth manifold $X$ is a vector bundle $A \to X$, a map $\rho: A \to {\rm T}X$ of vector bundles over $X$, and a bracket ...

### What is an obviously coordinate-independent description of the Chevellay-Eilenberg complex for a Lie algebroid?

I've read in many places, including the n-Lab page, that a Lie algebroid (which I think of as in the first definition on the n-Lab page) is the same as a vector bundle $A \to X$ and a (properties?) ...
