The momentum map in Poisson geometry

Rui Loja Fernandes, Juan Pablo Ortega, S. Tudor Ratiu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Every action on a Poisson manifold by Poisson diffeomorphisms lifts to a Hamiltonian action on its symplectic groupoid which has a canonically defined momentum map. We study various properties of this momentum map as well as its use in reduction..
