"Picard groups in Poisson geometry"

Abstract: I will define certain groups, naturally associated with Poisson manifolds, which are the analogue in Poisson geometry of the classical Picard groups in ring theory and differential geometry. I will discuss basic properties of these groups and compute them in a few examples. This is joint work with A. Weinstein.
