|Title:||Homotopy Poisson actions|
|Speaker:||Rajan Mehta, Penn State University|
|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.|
