Title 1 of the report: Graded bundles
Reporting time (Beijing Time): Feb 22, 2021, 16:00-17:00
Abstract: We start with showing that the multiplication by reals completely determines a smooth real vector bundle. Then we consider a general smooth action on the monoid of multiplicative reals on smooth manifolds. In this way homogeneity structures are defined. The vector bundles are homogeneity structures which are regular in a certain sense. It can be shown that homogeneity structures are manifolds whose local coordinates have associated degrees taking values in non-negative integers-graded bundles are born. A canonical example are the higher tangent bundles. We show also how to lift canonically homogeneity structures (graded bundle structures) to tangent and cotangent fibrations.
Title 2 of the report: Double structures and algebroids
Reporting time (Beijing Time): Feb 23, 2021, 16:00-17:00
Abstract: We define double graded bundles (in general n-tuple graded bundles) in terms of homogeneous structures. Classical examples are double vector bundles obtained from lifts, especially TE and T*E for a vector bundle E. We show the canonical isomorphism of double vector bundles T*E* and T*E. We define general algebroids (in particular, Lie algebroids) in terms of double vector bundle morphisms.
Title 3: Linearization of graded bundles and weighted structures
Reporting time (Beijing Time): Feb 24, 2021, 16:00-17:00
Abstract: We consider weighted structures which are geometric structures with a compatible homogeneity structure, for instant weighted Lie groupoids and weighted Lie algebroids which are natural generalizations of VB-groupoids and VB-algebroids. We introduce also the functor of linearization of graded bundles. Linearizing subsequently a graded bundle of degree n we arrive at n-tuple vector bundle. Those n-tuple vector bundles can be characterized geometrically, so that we obtain an equivalence of categories.
Title 4 (Title 4): Tulczyjew triples and geometric mechanics on algebroids
Reporting time (Beijing Time): Feb 25, 2021, 16:00-17:00
Abstract: Starting with the classical Tulczyjew triple involving TT*M, T*TM and T*T*M, we define the triple associated with a general algebroid involving TE*, T*E and T^*E^* . Using now Lagrangian and Hamiltonian functions we explain how to construct dynamics out of them, also in constrained cases, and Euler-Lagrange equations. We end up with mechanics on Lie algebroids with higher order Lagrangians.
