G-algebroids, consistent truncations and Poisson-Lie U-duality

“G-algebroids” are natural extension of Lie and Courant algebroids that give a unified picture of the symmetries that underlie generalised and exceptional geometry as well as new “non-exact” versions. We analyse their structure in the exceptional case, and translate the problem of finding maximally supersymmetric consistent truncations to a relatively simple algebraic condition. We then show how Poisson-Lie U-duality is encoded in this framework and prove, in particular, that it is compatible with the supergravity equations of motion.
