"On generalized Kähler structures and Lie brackets"

The link between Poisson brackets and generalized Kähler structures goes back to the work of Lyakhovich and Zabzine in 2002. Later on, this relationship acquired a new depth thanks to the generalized geometry viewpoint of Hitchin and Gualtieri. In this talk I will discuss the remarkable way in which Poisson geometry and Lie theory can be applied to describe generalized Kähler structures from a global perspective. This talk is based on work in progress with Marco Gualtieri and Yucong Jiang.
