Title:Jacobi manifolds and their coisotropics
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Luca Vitagliano, Università degli Studi di Salerno
Jacobi structures on manifolds were introduced by Kirillov and Lichnerowicz in the 70s. They generalize and unify several interesting geometric structures like Poisson, contact and locally conformal symplectic structures. The talk is divided into two parts. In the first part I will review the fundamentals of the geometry of Jacobi structures. In particular, I will present several examples and a local form theorem. The second part is more technical and it is based on joint work with Hông Vân Lê, Yong-Geun Oh and Alfonso Tortorella: I will discuss coisotropic submanifolds of Jacobi manifolds and the L-infinity algebra controlling their formal deformations.
