Title: Involution algebroids and their homotopy theory

Abstract: We define involution algebroids which generalise Lie algebroids to the abstract setting of tangent categories. We first sketch the relationship between our new definition and the classical one. Then as an illustrative example of how to work with the new definition we develop some of the homotopy theory of involution algebroids. This is joint work with Ben MacAdam.
