    i polished the definition in bundle gerbe and then reorganized the former material on “Interpretations” in a new section

    that first shows how to get a shifted central extension of groupoids form the bundle gerbe, and then demonstrates that this is the total space of a principal 2-bundle

    added to bundle gerbe more details on the proof of the fact that the bundle gerbe is the pullback

    P (Y,L,μ) EBU(1) C(U) μ B 2U(1) X \array{ P_{(Y,L,\mu)} &\to& \mathbf{E}\mathbf{B}U(1) \\ \downarrow && \downarrow \\ C(U) &\stackrel{\mu}{\to}& \mathbf{B}^2 U(1) \\ \downarrow^{\mathrlap{\simeq}} \\ X }

    added two examples to bundle gerbe:

    • group extensions (=equivariant bundle gerbes over the point)

    • the construction of the “tautological bundle gerbe” from an integral closed 3-form on a simply connected manifold

    I have added a pointer to the 1997 article by Gajer to bundle gerbe, bundle 2-gerbe and circle n-bundle with connection, where bundle nn-gerbes for all nn pretty explicitly as B n+1U(1)\mathbf{B}^{n+1}U(1)-bundles (also with connection) is given.

    started (here) compiling a list with references on equivariant bundle gerbes.

    (Will probably create a new entry equivariant infinity-bundle and copy this over to there, too.)
