Abstract

The Courant bracket defined originally on the sections of a vector bundle TM ⊕ T* M → M is extended to the direct sum of the 1-jet vector bundle and its dual. The extended bracket allows one to interpret many structures encountered in differential geometry, in terms of Dirac structures. We give here a new approach to conformal Jacobi structures.
