Poisson geometry, moduli spaces, and applications

Poisson geometry, moduli spaces, and applications

These lectures (consisting of 3 courses) will provide an introduction to Poisson geometry, symplectic geometry, and some of their applications such as moduli spaces. The origins of this field lie in mechanics and symplectic geometry, but the field developed rapidly towards the end of the 20th century, producing sophisticated concepts which unify many of the classical ideas and provide a mathematical foundation for applications to quantum theory. Participants will gain an overview of the field and be informed about typical applications. Each lecture (or course) will include introductory material – graduate students and researchers in mathematics, physics, and engineering are welcome.
