Non-antisymmetric versions of Nambu-Poisson and algebroid brackets. (English) Zbl 1021.53059

Summary: The authors show that they can skip the skew-symmetry assumption in the definition of Nambu-Poisson brackets. In other words, an \(n\)-ary bracket on the algebra of smooth functions which satisfies the Leibniz rule and an \(n\)-ary version of the Jacobi identity must be skew symmetric. A similar result holds for a non-antisymmetric version of Lie algebroids.
