Replacing the closed non-degenerate 2-form of the preceding example by a closed non-degenerate (n + 1)-form on M , we natural ly get the corresponding notion of Hamiltonian forms, Hamiltonian vector fields and the so-cal led Hemi-bracket in the context of n-plectic or multi-symplectic geometry studied in .

We will need to “acyclify” those stratifications; hence we would now like to introduce certain acyclic stratifications of the 2-sphere: Take n points (n ≥ 2) on a great circle on the sphere, and stratify the sphere into those points, the circle segments between them and the two hemi-spheres.
