MAT 1341S Topics in Differential Geometry: Poisson Geometry

Classes: M 10-12, W 11-12 BA 6180

This course is an introduction to Poisson geometry and related subjects.

Prerequisites: Topology I (Manifolds). Basic knowledge of symplectic geometry would be helpful.

Marking scheme

The course mark will be based on attendence, as well as a short essay (two to four pages) on a topic related to Poisson geometry or Dirac geometry. For example, it could be a synopsis of some paper, or some encyclopedia-style summary of some topic. It should be `reasonable', but should not be a time sink.
