For any integer N≥1, we consider a class of self-injective special biserial algebras AN given by quiver and relations over a field k. We study the Gerstenhaber structure of its Hochschild cohomology ring HH∗(AN). This Hochschild cohomology ring is a finitely generated k-algebra, due to the results by Snashall and Taillefer. We employ their cohomology computations and Suárez-Álvarez’s approach to compute all Gerstenhaber brackets of HH∗(AN). Furthermore, we study the Lie algebra structure of the degree-1 cohomology HH1(AN ) as embedded into a direct sum of Virasoro algebras and provide a decomposition of HHn(AN ) as a module over HH1(AN ).
