    I am experimenting with a notion of Heisenberg Lie nn-algebras, for all nn \in \mathbb{N}.

    I have made an experimental note on this here in the entry Heisenberg Lie algebra.

    It’s explicitly marked as “experimental”. If it turns out to be a bad idea, I’ll remove it again. Please try to shoot it down to see if I can rescue it! :-)

    I mean, the definition in itself is elementary and very simple. The question is if this is “the right notion” to consider. The reasoning here is:

    by the arguments as mentioned on the nCafé here we may feel sure that Chris Rogers’s notion of Poisson Lie n-algebra is correct. (Not that there were any particular doubts, but the fact that we can derive it from very general abstract homotopy theoretic constructions reinforces belief in it.)

    But the ordinary Heisenberg Lie algebra is just the sub-Lie algebra of the Poisson Lie algebra on the constant and the linear functions. Therefore it makes sense to look at the sub-Lie nn-algebra of the Poisson Lie nn-alhebra on the constant and linear differential forms That’s what my experimental definition does.
