## Geometry Seminar - Abstracts

### Talk

Wednesday 22 June 2016, 16:00 - 17:00, in HG00.310

**Pedro Frejlich** (PUC, Rio de Janeiro)

*Realizations and Universal Normal Forms*

### Abstract

In this talk we will discuss Poisson structures from a
Lagrangian point of view -- namely, that of Dirac structures. The goal is
to explain how one adapts the construction (due to Duistermaat, Kolk,
Weinstein, Crainic, Loja Fernandes) of the simply-connected lie group
integrating a given lie algebra to the case of Poisson manifolds, and what
one can salvage when it fails. We discuss applications to universal normal
forms and, time permitting, sketch some ideas regarding the non-Dirac
case. Ongoing joint work with I. Marcut.
