    I have expanded the Definition-section at super Lie algebra, stating more variants of equivalent definitions. This is material taken from the more comprehensive lecture notes at geometry of physics – superalgebra.

    added the statement (here) that super Lie algebras equipped with a lift to \mathbb{Z}-grading and with a choice of square-0 element in degree -1 are equivalently dg-Lie algebras

    I have added some discussion (here) of the super Lie algebra of multilinear maps V nVV^{\otimes_n} \to V for any finite-dimensional vector space VV, following Palmkvist 13, 3.1, Lavau-Palmkvist 19, 2.4 (my proof of the super-Jacobi identity remains incomplete, despite the lengthy computation).

    The discussion culminates in the observation that “embedding tensors” are equivalently elements of square=0 and degree = -1 in this algebra, and hence are equivalently the datum to turn it into a dg-Lie algebra – supposedly (up to some restrictions and extensions) the “tensor hierarchy” induced by the embedding tensor. Which is a neat observation.

    This super Lie algebra ought to have some standard name? Palmkvist attributes it to

    • Isaiah L. Kantor, Graded Lie algebras, Trudy Sem. Vektor. Tenzor. Anal 15 (1970): 227-266.

    but I haven’t found an actual copy of this article yet.
