Fermionic Novikov algebras admitting invariant non-degenerate symmetric bilinear forms. (English) Zbl 07285972

Summary: Novikov algebras were introduced in connection with the Poisson brackets of hydrodynamic type and Hamiltonian operators in the formal variational calculus. Fermionic Novikov algebras correspond to a certain Hamiltonian superoperator in a supervariable. In this paper, we show that fermionic Novikov algebras equipped with invariant non-degenerate symmetric bilinear forms are Novikov algebras.
