Poisson bracket Lie n-algebra

The Lie n-algebra that generalizes the Poisson bracket from symplectic geometry to n-plectic geometry: the *Poisson bracket $L_\infty$-algebra of local observables* in higher prequantum geometry.

The detailed discussion is currently still here at *n-plectic geometry*.

**slice-automorphism ∞-groups in higher prequantum geometry**

cohesive ∞-groups: | Heisenberg ∞-group | $\hookrightarrow$ | quantomorphism ∞-group | $\hookrightarrow$ | ∞-bisections of higher Courant groupoid | $\hookrightarrow$ | ∞-bisections of higher Atiyah groupoid |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

L-∞ algebras: | Heisenberg L-∞ algebra | $\hookrightarrow$ | Poisson L-∞ algebra | $\hookrightarrow$ | Courant L-∞ algebra | $\hookrightarrow$ | twisted vector fields |

**higher and integrated Kostant-Souriau extensions**:

(∞-group extension of ∞-group of bisections of higher Atiyah groupoid for $\mathbb{G}$-principal ∞-connection)

$(\Omega \mathbb{G})\mathbf{FlatConn}(X) \to \mathbf{QuantMorph}(X,\nabla) \to \mathbf{HamSympl}(X,\nabla)$

(extension are listed for sufficiently connected $X$)
