This is the website for the Lie algebroids, Poisson manifolds
and Jacobi structures working seminar, organised by Carlos
ZapataCarratalá within the Edinburgh Mathematical Physics
Group.
Originating in the mathematics of classical mechanics, Poisson
geometry has become a vibrant branch of pure mathematics in
the last few decades, with deep connections to groupoid
theory, noncommutative geometry and integrable systems. In
this minicourse we aim to give a broad introduction to the
subject to, hopefully, spark interest for further study in
those who attend the lectures.
The lectures take place over a 2hour period with a 5minute
break and time for questions, encouraged both at the end and
during the lectures. Due to the COVID19 pandemic we have moved
to online seminars held over Zoom. To join a lecture
follow this

minutes before the scheduled times. You may click on the title
of past lectures to access the lecture notes.
