Title: CANCELLED - Symplectic (stacky) groupoids of Poisson manifolds - CANCELLED
Speaker: Professor Zhu Chenchang
Speaker Info: (ETH Zurich)
Brief Description:
Special Note:

A symplectic groupoid is a symplectic manifold with a submersive Poisson morphism onto a Poisson manifold. It was designed with the purpose to relate quantization of symplectic manifolds and Poisson manifolds. But not every Poisson manifold can be associated with such a symplectic groupoid. In this talk, we will first explain Weinstein's plan to associate Poisson manifolds symplectic groupoids, and then how to put a symplectic structure on a stack and how to solve the above problem after we enter the world of stacks (joint with H. Tseng). We will attack stacks from the viewpoint of groupoids in this talk.
