Lie theory for stacky Lie groupoids
Formal Lie groupoids
Definition: Stacky Lie groupoid
A stacky Lie groupoid (in contrast to a Lie groupoid) is an internal groupoid in the category of differentiable stacks, such that the space of objects is an ordinary manifold.
Notice that differentiable stacks are equivalent to Lie groupoids modulo Morita equivalence.
Stacky Lie groupoids and their Lie theory were introduced and studied by Chenchang Zhu and collaborators.
