Summary of the report:
The concept of a higher algebroid, as introduced by M. Jóźwikowski and M. Rotkiewicz, naturally generalizes the notions of an algebroid and a higher tangent bundle. The idea is based on a description of (Lie) algebroids as differential relations of a special kind. My goal is to explain the notion of a higher algebroid in a more standard language, i.e. in terms of some bracket operations and vector bundle morphisms. In order two we end up with representation up to homotopy of (Lie) algebroids.
