nLab linear Poisson structure

see at Lie-Poisson structure for more


The linear dual vector space of a finite-dimensional Lie algebra has a natural Poisson structure of Kirillov-Kostant-Souriau which is called the linear Poisson structure. Its symplectic leaves are precisely the coadjoint orbits. The geometric quantization of linear Poisson structures is important in the representation theory; the corresponding star products are important basic examples in the study of deformation quantization (e.g. Gutt 11, section 2.2).
