### Bracket systems (generalization of Poisson brackets)

Related to Why symplectic geometry gives Poisson geometry by coming at it from the other side. This isn't as fully formalized as it probably should be, but I think enough of the idea is there to ask ...

### Interpretation of the Schouten bracket as an integrability condition

The Schouten bracket is an extension of the Lie bracket to multivector fields. Given a multivector field $\Lambda$ the vanishing of the Schouten bracket $[\Lambda,\Lambda]=0$ is referred to as a sort ...

### If $A$ is a (shifted) Poisson algebra, what does $A[\varepsilon]$ represent?

I have a question which is not really precise, unfortunately. Let $A$ be a Poisson $n$-algebra, i.e. a graded commutative algebra with a Lie bracket of degree $n-1$ s.t. the bracket is a biderivation ...

### Is there a classification of polynomial Poisson brackets?

As an example, consider the following Poisson bracket on ${\mathbb R}^n$: $$\{x_i, x_{i+1}\} = x_ix_{i+1}(x_i+x_{i+1}),\\ \{x_i, x_{i+2}\} = x_ix_{i+1}x_{i+2}.$$ The indices are taken modulo $n$, and ...

### Decompose elements in $SL_2$ as a pair of elements in $SL_2^*$.

I have a question about decomposing elements in $SL_2$ as a pair of elements in $SL_2^*$. Here $SL_2^*$ is the dual Poisson Lie group of $SL_2$ which is defined as follows. Let $G$ be a Poisson-Lie ...
