### Reference request: Integration of A-paths.

Recall that an A-path for a Lie Algebroid is an an algebroid morphism from the tangent bundle over the unit interval $[0,1]= I$ to a general Lie algebroid $A$. Now, whenever A is the algebroid of some ...

### Local trivializations and transition law of Atiyah Lie algebroid

Let $P\rightarrow M$ be a $G$-principal bundle and denote by $\mathrm{at}(P):=TP/G$ the Atiyah Lie algebroid over $M$. I want to understand how $\mathrm{at}(P)$ is a locally trivial Lie algebroid with ...

### Is there any reference treating explicitly Lie-Rinehart pairs over non-commutative base algebras?

Wondering around in the literature, any reference to Lie-Rinehart algebras define them as pairs $(A,L)$ where $A$ is a commutative algebra over some field $\Bbbk$ (or even commutative ring) and $L$ is ...

### Example of action of a Lie algebroid

I am studying the notions of Lie groupoids and algebroids. I am mainly interested in the specific case of Lie algebroids which are actually Lie algebra bundles over an open subset of $\mathbb{R}^k$. ...

### Integrability of Lie algebroids

In the article https://arxiv.org/pdf/math/0611259.pdf, it is defined the integrability of a Lie algebroid as follows: a Lie algebroid $A$ is integrable iff it is isomorphic to the Lie algebroid of a ...

### Homotopy of algebroid paths

In Lectures on Integrability of Lie Brackets, Proposition 3.15, Fernandes and Crainic motivate what it means to say that two paths on an algebroid are homotopic. I spent quite some time trying to ...

### Purpose of the anchor map, Lie algebroid

Let $X$ be a scheme. A Lie algebroid $L$ on $X$ is a quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_X$-module equipped with a morphism of $\mathcal{O}_X$-modules $\sigma:L\to \mathcal{T}_X$ the tangent sheaf, and a Lie ...

### What is the tangent Lie algebroid to a Lie groupoid?

How do you define the tangent Lie algebroid to a Lie groupoid? In this online note Lie Algebroids, Lie Groupoids and Poisson Geometry by Sébastien Racanière, it states that if $t\colon G_1\to G_0$ is ...

### What kind of structure on the tangent bundle is determined by the commutator of vector fields? Or, trying to understand algebroids.

I vaguely remember seeing this accurately described somewhere but cannot recall where, so mainly this is a reference request. Let $T$ be the tangent bundle of a smooth manifold or of an algebraic ...

### Why aren't there any derivations of degree inferior to $-1$ of the DG-algebra $(\Omega(A), d_A, \wedge)$?

Let $A$ be a vector bundle over a manifold $M$. We can assotiate a graded algebra $(\Omega(A), \wedge)$ where $$\wedge:\Omega^i(A)\times \Omega^j(A)\longrightarrow \Omega^{i+j}(A),$$ is given by (\...
