As a motivation, we start with an analysis of the interplay between the classical Jacobi identity and differential operators, and
compare it with the effect of the associator.  Moving to the `quantized' level, we compare the nature of the big bracket and
IBL(=infinitesimal Lie bialgebras)-infinity algebras with Terilla's quantization of associative algebras.
In the second part, we introduce a filtration mimicking combinatorial properties of multidifferential operators, and
the associated notion  of tight operads. We then come back to Lie algebras and give another reason why they deserve
to be, along with commutative and associative algebras, recognized as one of the Three Graces.

The talk will be based on the paper   "Calculus of multilinear differential operators, operator $L_\infty$-algebras and $IBL_\infty$-algebras"
 of Denis Bashkirov and mine. Its preprint is available at,  published version at

We open the blue   lecture room at 13.15 for  coffee  and close  it at 15.00
