All the tickets are now based on the category ticket #18175, so that the manifold categories are
Manifolds(K)
for topological manifolds over a topological field KManifolds(K).Differentiable()
for differentiable manifoldsManifolds(K).Smooth()
for smooth manifolds

Something I would like to see once the basics are done is a catalog of examples and common interesting manifolds:
- n-sphere
- n-torus
- real/complex projective n-space
- surfaces
- (Affine) Grassmannians
- Classical Lie groups (more for my info, a description of charts is on page 5 of https://www.dpmms.cam.ac.uk/~agk22/mfds.pdf, but this probably isn't a good atlas for doing computations)
I understand that some of these could be considered more wishlist than others. Some other wishlist items:
- Morse theory to compute homology of manifolds.
- Manifolds with boundary
- Cartesian products of manifolds (or more generally, fiber bundles)
- DeRham? cohomology (see, e.g., lecture notes above)

Thanks for these suggestions. For sure, one should have a catalog of standard manifolds. For the time being, there are only examples available as worksheets at http://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/examples.html, for instance
- the 2-sphere at http://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/examples/html/SM_sphere_S2.html
- the real projective plane at http://sagemanifolds.obspm.fr/examples/html/SM_projective_plane_RP2.html
- the hyperbolic plane at http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/sagemanifolds/SageManifolds/blob/master/Worksheets/v0.8/SM_hyperbolic_plane.ipynb

- DeRham? cohomology (see, e.g., lecture notes above)
All the above seem indeed desirable extensions. Even if they are not implemented yet, we should have them in mind when setting the basics.

PS: could you point to some existing catalog in Sage, in order to have some example?

Would there be any interest in Kontsevich graphs, which are related to Poisson structures on manifolds from what I saw? In particular, in https://arxiv.org/abs/1702.00681, there is reference to a C++ package https://github.com/rburing/kontsevich_graph_series-cpp (with the MIT license).

With collaborators (independent from the above) we have developed a Sage package for calculations with Kontsevich graphs, Poisson brackets and deformation quantizations; the preliminary version will be released later this year. We certainly would like to interface our code with SageManifolds.
The main thing we would need is a SageManifolds implementation of the algebra of multivector fields (exterior algebra of the tangent bundle) and its Schouten bracket https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schouten%E2%80%93Nijenhuis_bracket. Are there any plans in this direction?

It would certainly be easy to implement multivector fields at the level of a sequence of modules over the ring of scalar fields, in the same footing as what has been done for differential forms, cf. http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/reference/manifolds/sage/manifolds/differentiable/diff_form_module.html Each module, V^{p}(M) say, will be the set of multivector fields with a fixed degree p, i.e. the set of p-vectors. Implementing the Schouten bracket atop of this as an exterior operator V^{p}(M) x V^{q}(M) --> V^{p+q-1}(M) should not be too difficult either. But in such a setting, we do not introduce explicitely the algebra of multivector fields, which is the direct sum of all the modules V^{p}(M). Would this be an issue for you?

Great! This is indeed the sort of implementation I was imagining. One would like the operations of wedge product V^{p} x V^{q} -> V^{p+q} and Schouten bracket V^{p} x V^{q} -> V^{p+q-1}. One would also like to have interior contractions with forms Omega^{p} x V^{q} -> V^{q-p} and V^{p} x Omega^{q} -> Omega^{q-p}, defined when q >= p.

I don't foresee any issue.

This seems quite straightforward to implement. Only a matter of finding time to do it...

Very good!
The question is then: what is your time scale? i.e. when would you like these features to be available?

The pure algebraic part of this has been implemented, including the interior products, see #23207. There remains to implement the differential part, in particular the Schouten bracket. On the Wikipedia page, there is some warning: "There are two different versions, both rather confusingly called by the same name." Do we agree that the thing to implement is the bracket given by the second formula in that page?

Multivector fields and their Schouten-Nijenhuis bracket are now ready (at least for review...): #23429.
