Poisson geometry

Idea

Poisson geometry is primarily the study of Poisson manifolds and the foliation by symplectic leaves, but more generally it involves a host of induced and related structures that appear notably in the study of deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds, such as their Poisson Lie algebroids, coisotropic submanifolds, symplectic Lie groupoids etc.
