Title:Homotopy Poisson actions
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Rajan Mehta, Penn State University
Abstract:
A homotopy Poisson manifold is a graded manifold whose algebra of functions has an L-infinity algebra structure where all the brackets satisfy Leibniz rules. I will give an introduction to homotopy Poisson geometry, including "homotopy" versions of Poisson-Lie groups, Lie bialgebras, and Poisson actions. Then I will explain how such structures appear in the reduction of (ordinary) Poisson manifolds.
