Duality Hierarchies

Gauged supergravity as well as double and exceptional field theory can be formulated in terms of a hierarchy of duality relations between curvatures originating from the tensor hierarchy. The needed higher algebraic structures can be derived from a differential graded Lie algebra. I outline how exceptional field theory fits into this scheme by showing that its generalized geometric structures can be naturally interpreted in terms of an embedding tensor map and an infinite-dimensional Lie algebra.
