Title:Symplectic realizations of Poisson manifolds
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Ping Xu, Penn State University
Poisson brackets were invented in the early 19th century to provide a framework for optics and classical mechanics. Poisson geometry developed into a separate branch of mathematics during the 1960s, with applications to various aspects of physics, as well as to other areas of mathematics such as representation theory and integrable systems. In this talk, I will discuss the problem of symplectic realizations of Poisson manifolds, a classical question which can be traced back to Sophus Lie.
